Killing Journalists Should Be a Crime of War

In a terse statement, appropriate in both its tone and style, the president and CEO of the Associated Press, Gary Pruitt, says:

… we believe the assassination of a journalist in wartime should be considered an international crime of war.

I would add that the killing of any journalist, at any time, should be considered, if not a war crime, akin to a hate crime.
