Live from Baghdad 

From "TV reporter killed by US fire during live Baghdad broadcast", Telegraph UK:

A television journalist was shot dead as he made a live broadcast from Baghdad yesterday when United States helicopters fired on a crowd that had gathered round the burning wreckage of an American armoured vehicle.

Mazen al-Tumeizi, a Palestinian working for Al-Arabiya, one of the main Arab satellite television channels, was among 12 people - all believed to be civilians - killed in the incident on Haifa Street.

Update: Here is some footage from al-Tumeizi's last broadcast, via The Sydney Morning Herald.
