Giuliana Sgrena, Italian journalist held hostage in Iraq for a month

The International Federation of Journalists says that Iraq is the most dangerous place in the world. Recently, a reporter was killed in the country, a Russian photographer named Dmitry Chebotayev. A year ago, four Russian diplomats were assassinated in Baghdad. And two years ago, the world followed the kidnapping of an Italian journalist, who was held hostage in Iraq for a month. On her release, she was badly wounded by the U.S. patrol whilst traveling to an airport. Giuliana Sgrena is our guest in the Spotlight studio today.
