    Reuters Photographer Noor-Eldeen dies

    I thought people might find this newsworthy.

    Reuters photographer Namir Noor-Eldeen smiles in Baghdad in this recent file photo. Noor-Eldeen and driver Saeed Chmagh were killed in eastern Baghdad on July 12, 2007 in what police said was American military action and which witnesses described as a helicopter attack.

    Very sad.

    Kind of puts in perspective Snegron's tornado alley trip. Being a wartime PJ and in constant harm's way definitely makes tornado chasing look tame.

    Covering a war is always dangerous, I won't do it, but you have to ask why was his car targeted by a helicopter gunship? What makes driving anywhere in Iraq safe from an aerial attack?

    The only speculation I have is they were speeding towards a military action, and the helicopter pilot thought the car was a suicide bomber.

    Very sad.
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.
