A Spanish judge has issued an international arrest order for three US soldiers whose tank fired at a Baghdad hotel during the war in Iraq, killing a Spanish journalist, a court official said Wednesday. Jose Couso, who worked for the Spanish television network Telecinco, died April 8, 2003, after the tank crew fired a shell at the Palestine Hotel in Baghdad where many journalists were staying to cover the war. The Spanish judge said he issued the arrest order because of a lack of judicial cooperation from the United States regarding the case. US officials insist the soldiers believed they were being shot at when they opened fire.
