Insurgents Freed Journalist, US Troops Shot Her

An Italian journalist, Guiliana Sgrena, kidnapped and then freed by Iraqi insurgents, was ironically shot by trigger happy US troops as she was making her way back to freedom. Nicola Calipari, an Italian agent escorting her, and who had negotiated her release, was killed in the shooting. He covered her with his own body when the US soldiers started firing at their vehicle. Two others were also injured.
