I have no idea how widely this is being reported in the US, so I thought I’d post it here:
ITN news journalist Terry Lloyd is dead, quite possible killed by “friendly fire” from US troops. He was ITN’s longest-serving reporter and a veteran war-reporter to boot. Yes, it’s a dangerous job. Yes, he was paid well for it. But what a stupid, futile way for one of our top TV reporters to die.
