Horror at killing of journalist.

ITALY reacted with horror today at the killing of an Italian journalist in Iraq, while the Italian government insisted it would stay the course in the war-torn Middle Eastern country.

Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini said the killing of freelance journalist Enzo Baldoni was "an act of barbarity, a horrendous act that has struck a courageous journalist who had gone to Iraq to help the Iraqi people".

But Frattini echoed Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi's assertion that Italy would maintain its troop presence in Iraq despite Baldoni's killing.
