Steven Vincent murdered in Iraq

It is believed that he was killed because his reporting was critical of the mainly Shiite police force in Basra.

He was shot in the chest three times, his translator was shot in the chest four times but is still alive last report so perhaps she will be able to state who killed Steven.

One of my favorite articles written by him

His last NYT article

It's obvious freedom of speech and freedom of the Press have a long way to go in Iraq. My condolences to his family and friends, while I of course did not know him he was a very talented author and journalist.
