Journalist death toll exceeds Vietnam.

In 2-1/2 years, the Iraq war has already killed more journalists than died in the entire 20-year Vietnam conflict. Between 1955 and 1975, 63 journalists were killed in Vietnam; so far, 66 reporters or media professionals have died in Iraq, the most recent being a Reuters soundman shot yesterday. According to reports Waleed Khaled was downed by five shots fired by a US sniper. The shooter was detained, then released without charge.
