The British government has been asked by the family of the late ITN reporter Terry Lloyd to seek the cooperation of the Pentagon in the investigation of Lloyd's death. The reporter was killed during the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003 after he was wounded in crossfire between Iraqi and U.S. forces. As he was being taken in a private car for treatment, he was allegedly shot in the head by a U.S. soldier. Although a British coroner last week ruled that Lloyd was unlawfully killed by the soldier, the man responsible has not been identified. Lloyd's family, along with Britain's National Union of Journalists, has called upon Defense Minister Des Browne to press his U.S. counterparts to allow British investigators access to the soldiers involved.
