A coroner is expected to announce his finding Friday in an inquest into the death of a British reporter who was killed in the opening days of the Iraq war when he apparently was caught in fighting between US and Iraqi forces. Deputy Coroner Andrew Walker has been asked by the family of Terry Lloyd, 50, a veteran reporter for the British television network ITN, to rule at a court in Oxford that he was unlawfully killed by U.S. troops who gunned him down in southern Iraq. Witnesses have testified during the weeklong inquest that Lloyd - who was driving with fellow ITN reporters from Kuwait toward Basra, Iraq - was shot in the back by Iraqi troops who overtook his car, then died when US fire hit an ambulance and struck him in the head. Lloyd and three other ITN crew members were some of the few Western reporters who covered the fighting on their own, while most others were embedded with US or British forces.
