Iraq Journo Families “Fear For Loved Ones”

The dangers faced by journalists in Iraq weighs heavily on friends and families, Peter Johnson says in Monday’s USA Today. CNN Baghdad correspondent Jane Arraf says: “A lot of our own people who would normally be in Iraq are staying home because their families would just go nuts. My mother keeps asking me to come back and work for the Saskatoon Star Phoenix” in Saskatchewan, Canada.

‘I would rather he be doing something a little bit different, but I know how much he loves his work and how much he loves to be where the story is,’ Hymans says. ‘So I’ve learned to build a little bit of a wall. I have to sit back and pray a lot.’”
