NBC's reporter Ayman Mohyeldin, whose removal by the network from Gaza had raised questions and criticism, will go back to report from the city he knows well, an NBC statement said Friday.Mohyeldin's withdrawal from Gaza came shortly after he reported the Israeli airstrike on a Gaza beach that killed four Palestinian children Wednesday.Despite his extensive coverage and the on-ground reporting he had made, Mohyeldin was missing from the primetime newscast covering the incident, leading to complaints Wednesday from his fellow journalists. The Intercept, among other news outlets, reported that a high-level executive at NBC ordered Mohyeldin out of Gaza "immediately".The network did not give an official reason for withdrawing Mohyeldin from Gaza. Although executives told media that the move was merely out of "security concerns," NBC then sent their chief foreign correspondent to replace Mohyeldin.
