ITN vow to probe TV death.

Byline: ALLISON MARTIN

ITN yesterday vowed to fight on to find the truth about reporter Terry Lloyd's death in Iraq.

ITV has announced it will help Royal Military Police launch a fresh TV appeal for witnesses.

ITN chief executive Mark Wood said: "We will to do all we can to help get to the truth."

Lloyd, 50, was initially thought to have died from a stomach wound when the ITN team was caught in crossfire between Iraqi and US troops.

But the Daily Mirror revealed evidence that Lloyd died on his way to hospital when he was shot in the head as his vehicle was strafed by a US helicopter gunship.

Colleagues French cameraman Fred Nerac and Lebanese translator Hussein Othman are thought to have been captured and executed.

The military police have now said the witness testimony of Hamid Aglan, who tried to drive Lloyd to safety, was "highly credible".
