Roof Plunge Likely in British Reporter's Death

From Times Wire Reports

A British TV correspondent covering the war in Iraq died after apparently falling from a hotel roof, his network said. Gaby Rado, 48, was found in a parking lot of the Abu Sanaa hotel in Sulaymaniyah, where he and other reporters were staying, said Independent Television News.

An ITN statement said his death didn't appear related to any military action.

Rado had been in the Kurdish-controlled area of northern Iraq, reporting on Kurdish fighters and coalition troops. Police were interviewing a witness.
