British journalist was shot dead by US forces in Iraq...

Photo shows Chelsey Lloyd, daughter of reporter Terry Lloyd, leaving Oxford Coroner's Court last Friday to give a statement to the media in Oxford, England.

A veteran reporter for British television network ITN, Terry Lloyd was shot dead by US forces in Iraq in March 2003. A coroner has delivered a verdict of unlawful killing. His interpreter also died and his cameraman, Daniel Demoustier, who survived the attack, is missing.

I assume the shooting of Terry Lloyd was an accident.

Too many stories lately about journalists killed in the line of duty. I guess this is just another example of the negative consequences of war.
