I once watched an excellent BBC documentary about a BBC news team working in Iraq Immediately after the Americans entered from Turkey. It shows footage of them hit by friendly fire when a fighter dropped heavy ordinance on them after failing to see the fluorescent press sign on the roofs of the press vehicles, apparently the jet was only fitted with black and white cameras and could not see the bright orange markings. Many of the entourage were killed instantly. Their cameraman was mortally wounded after it was revealed that the BBC would not pay for a bullet/shrapnel proof jacket for him because he was Iraqi and not British. This cause a bit of a anger at the time. Great documentary though.
