and here's another story (not as comprehensive as the first link)

List Of Journalists Killed in Iraq

April 8, 2003, 9:54 AM EDT

News organization employees killed in combat situations during the war in Iraq, which began March 20:

-- Tareq Ayyoub, Jordanian journalist for Al-Jazeera, Qatar, April 8, at the Al-Jazeera office in Baghdad

-- Jose Couso, cameraman for Spanish television network Telecinco. April 8, at the Palestine hotel in Baghdad.

-- Kaveh Golestan, Iranian freelance cameraman for the BBC, northern Iraq, April 2

-- Michael Kelly, editor-at- large, The Atlantic Monthly, U.S.A., April 3, near Baghdad.


and just so eveyone reading this will know that prior to the invasion, the Pentagon threatened to kill un-imbedded journalists:


10th March, 2003

The Pentagon has threatened to fire on the satellite uplink positions of independent journalists in Iraq, according to veteran BBC war correspondent, Kate Adie. In an interview with Irish radio, Ms. Adie said that questioned about the consequences of such potentially fatal actions, a senior Pentagon officer had said: "Who cares.. ..They've been warned."

According to Ms. Adie, who twelve years ago covered the last Gulf War, the Pentagon attitude is: "entirely hostile to the the free spread of information."

"I am enormously pessimistic of the chance of decent on-the-spot reporting, as the war occurs," she told Irish national broadcaster, Tom McGurk on the RTE1 Radio "Sunday Show."

Ms. Adie made the startling revelations during a discussion of media freedom issues in the likely upcoming war in Iraq. She also warned that the Pentagon is vetting journalists according to their stance on the war, and intends to take control of US journalists' satellite equipment --in order to control access to the airwaves.
