Video depicting US forces killing of two Reuters journalists in Iraq

The video released today shows something quite different. A group of about 15 Iraqi men on a filthy street, chatting and walking along, apparently unaware of the helicopters watching them. One of the Americans in the helicopter says “that’s a weapon” while his cross-hairs focuses on a man identifies as Mr. Noor-Eldeen, one of two Reuters personnel killed who has what appears to be a professional camera slung over his right shoulder.


Permission is given, a voice says “light them all up,” and the helicopter opens up on the group with its machine gun – apparently killing all but two of the men. One unarmed man who escaped the first salvo and ran across the street into an empty lot is also tracked and killed
