James Miller, freelance
2 May 2003

British freelance cameraman James Miller was killed by Israeli army gunfire in Rafah in the Gaza Strip while covering the destruction of a house by the Israeli army.

An army spokesman said soldiers opened fire in response to anti-tank rockets fired in their direction. When combing the area afterwards, they found Miller with a bullet wound in his neck. He died while waiting to be taken by army helicopter to an Israeli hospital.

The Israeli army voiced its "regrets" but said Miller had taken a big risk by being in what was a war zone. Miller was working for a privately-owned British production company.
