Baghdad - Reuters cameraman Mazen Dana was shot dead on Sunday while filming
near a United States-run prison on the outskirts of Baghdad, the US military
said.

Eyewitnesses said Dana, 43, was shot by soldiers on an American tank as he
filmed outside Abu Ghraib prison in western Baghdad.

Dana's last pictures show a US tank driving towards him outside the prison
walls. Several shots ring out from the tank, and Dana's camera falls to the
ground.
