Pink Floyd man remembers dead Reuters news staff on Wall tour
Tuesday 30 November 2010
Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters, pictured, honours two Reuters news staff members killed in Iraq on his global tour of The Wall, named after the British rock band's 1979 best-selling double album.
The two-hour show is a harrowing journey through death, destruction and despair, Los Angeles correspondent Dean Goodman reported on Tuesday. Photos of victims of violence frequently flash across a wall.
Waters, 67, formerly the band’s bass player and lyricist, screened leaked US military video showing two Reuters news staffers being killed in an attack by Apache helicopters.
“Namir Noor-Eldeen and Saeed Chmagh, we will remember you,” a banner read.
Noor-Eldeen, 22, photographer, and Chmagh, 40, his assistant and driver, were killed in Baghdad on 12 July 2007. ■
