Many of us who have lost friends and colleagues in Iraq have expressed anger and bitterness at the way their cases have been investigated.

Today, there's damning criticism of the behaviour of American troops towards journalists working in Iraq in a report by the world’s largest journalists’ group, the International Federation of Journalists.

The IFJ says says the United States has shown "flagrant disregard" for the safety of reporters and says the US is handling the cases of killed and missing journalists with "secrecy, deceit and arrogance."

"In most cases we know the individuals who pulled the trigger. But we must challenge those who are responsible for the culture of neglect and arrogance that puts media staff in harm’s way when they are reporting from a war zone," says IFJ General Secretary, Aidan White.
