Terry Lloyd, the veteran ITN reporter, was unlawfully killed by US forces working in southern Iraq, a coroner has found.

Andrew Walker, Oxfordshire's assistant deputy coroner, said he would write to the Attorney General and the Director of Public Prosecutions "to see whether any steps can be taken to bring the perpetrators responsible for this to justice".

Mr Lloyd, 50, was killed, together with Lebanese interpreter Hussein Osman and French cameraman Fred Nerac, near the Shatt al Basra Bridge outside Iraq's second city of Basra on March 22, 2003, the coroner said. Only a cameraman survived.

Mr Lloyd was shot in the back after his vehicle, clearly marked "Press", got caught up in US and Iraqi crossfire, then shot in the head by American forces as he was taken away in a minibus for medical treatment.
