More journalists killed in Iraq...

An unknown number of gunmen pulled up at the station in seven cars, stormed quickly into the offices and opened fire, killing eleven of the station's employees.

This was a group of journalists trying to get a new independent station off the ground. What happened is sad beyond description. When will this madness end?
