Spanish Magistrate Issues Arrest Warrant For Three U. S. Soldiers in 2003 Death of Spanish Cameraman

Spanish magistrate Santiago Pedraz has issued an international arrest warrant for three Americans in the death of Jose Couso, who perished in the U. S. takeover of Baghdad in April 2003. The three, who were members of the 3d Infantry Division, face little chance of being extradited to Spain for trial. The Spanish prosecutor's office said it would challenge the arrest warrant on the grounds that the judge had no jurisdiction. Read more in a Reuters story here and in a CNN story here.
