10 Journalists Dead

NYTimes: "Tariq Ayoub, a Jordanian journalist working for the Arab news service Al-Jazeera, died after two American missiles struck his company's headquarters in downtown Baghdad just after dawn today. Later in the day, about a mile across town, an American tank shelled Baghdad's Palestine Hotel, where most foreign journalists are based, killing two television cameramen — Taras Protsyuk, 35, a Ukranian national working for Reuters, and Jose Couso, 37, of the Telecino Spanish television station, who was fatally injured in the attack. American forces also reportedly fired on an office owned by Abu Dhabi Television, an Arab broadcasting network, this morning."
