The U.S. also comes under fire today from Reporters Without Borders , which
has issued a statement accusing the US military of deliberately firing at
journalists. Reporters Without Borders called today on US defense secretary
Donald Rumsfeld to provide evidence that the offices of the pan-Arab TV
station Al-Jazeera and the Palestine Hotel in Baghdad were not deliberately
fired at by US forces earlier in the day in attacks that killed three

"We are appalled at what happened because it was known that both places
contained journalists," said the organisation's secretary-general Robert
Ménard. "Film shot by the French TV station France 3 and descriptions by
journalists show the neighbourhood was very quiet at that hour and that the
US tank crew took their time, waiting for a couple of minutes and adjusting
its gun before opening fire."
