Steven Vincent, insightful war reporter, murdered in Iraq ten years ago

It has been ten years since freelance journalist Steven Vincent, an idealistic war reporter and former art critic, was kidnapped and murdered in Basra, Iraq, as an upsurge in violence bedeviled the U.S.-led occupation. His translator Nour al-Khal — an aspiring young poet whom Vincent saw as the representative of a more modern Middle East — was shot and left for dead.
