BBC NEWS | Middle East | US journalist shot dead in Iraq

In a recent New York Times article, Mr Vincent wrote that Basra’s police force had been infiltrated by Shia militants.
He quoted a senior Iraqi police lieutenant saying some officers were behind many of the killings of former Baath party members in Basra.
Mr Vincent also criticised the UK forces, who are responsible for security in Basra, for ignoring abuses of power by Shia extremists.

An unfortunate aspect of my neighbour’s nation building efforts.
