    She was a professional and experienced photojournalist and knew what the risks are in a war zone, if she needed a safe life she would have got a job as a secretary, or behind the makeup counter in a department store, she was a very courageous woman who put herself in harms way to do her job whose death I agree is sad and tragic, but a risk she had decided to take.

    Good grief! - did you dance on your Grandma's grave as well????

    A highly experienced photojournalist is killed by a mad policeman and you want to make a joke of it.

    Unbelievable.

    She was buried yesterday. Public radio even gave a report from the burial. Something very extraordinary to do.

    Yes, it is terrible.

    I agree with David though, your choice of words above was, well, less than ideal.
