Elizabeth Neuffer killed in Iraq. Boston Globe reporter Elizabeth Neuffer died earlier today in Iraq, as the car in which she was riding struck a guard rail.

This is awful news, and it underscores how dangerous the life of a foreign correspondent can be, even at a time when the shooting war has more or less come to an end.

Like many Globe readers, I've long admired her work, as she has reported from some of the world's most dangerous hot spots, such as Rwanda and Bosnia.
