Israel targets journalists

Sound familiar?

Israeli helicopters attack Arab journalists

Israeli gunships fired missiles at vehicles carrying Al Arabiya and Al Jazira news crews. The vehicles were clearly identified as transporting reporters and cameramen with "TV" painted in big letters on the roof. The news caravan was hit on the road between were Marjayoun and Hazbaya, in southern Lebanon. The newsmen were covering fleeing refugees searching for shelter. [via La Repubblica]
