BAGHDAD (Reuters) – An American journalist has been found shot dead in the southern Iraqi city of Basra, a Western diplomat said on Wednesday.
The diplomat told Reuters the next of kin of Steven Vincent has been notified and an investigation was underway to determine who was behind the death. Vincent had been writing a book about the city.
This is Vincent’s blog site In the Red Zone for those who do not know. If confirmed, this is a horrible tragedy – a writer of great promise struck down, not to mention a fine man.
We should all do something. Suggestions welcome here.
UPDATE: More details.
