Journalists targeted in the Russo-Georgian war?

A very high number of journalists have been killed in less than a week of war in Georgia, a surprising and disturbing outcome to such a short conflict.  

You can go here to make a donation to assist the families of Alexander Kliumchuk and Giga Chikhladze, who were killed while working on a story in South Ossetia.  (Thanks to Ralph Haelbig for passing this along.)

And go here for footage of a Georgian TV reporter being shot.  (She then finished her piece!)
