Spanish Journalists protested the death of a Spanish TV cameraman killed by a U.S. tank shell in Baghdad yesterday by putting their cameras, microphones and notebooks on the floor as Prime Minister Jose Maria Aznar arrived at the Senate.

Aznar found the floor outside the chamber covered with equipment and 30 to 40 journalists standing in stony silence.

In a further display of anger, about 20 Spanish journalists walked out of a news conference with British Foreign Minister Jack Straw and his Spanish counterpart, Ana Palacio, after just one question.
