Spain is to prosecute three American soldiers for the killing of a Spanish TV cameraman during the Iraq War. The soldiers are being held responsible for the death of Jose Couso after a tank fired on a hotel as American forces seized Baghdad in the 2003 conflict. Judge Santiago Pedraz had originally thrown out the charges last year. He said at the time there was "insufficient evidence" of deliberate intent on the part of the three to target civilians inside the hotel where journalists were known to be staying. But Judge Pedraz has now said there is new evidence, including reports by experts and from a former US soldier, for the charges to be applied.

And surely the cameraman deliberately endangered himself when he chose to go to Iraq in the first place? He knew what he was risking, no need for him to be there.
