HeadLine: Family’s farewell to Iraq journalist

A SCOTS journalist shot dead in Iraq after he was mistaken for a US
soldier was laid to rest yesterday.
Hundreds of mourners gathered at Melrose Parish Church in the Borders
to say farewell to 24-year-old Richard Wild.
His parents Robin and Daphne clutched each other during the 50-minute
service.
They had urged Richard not to go to Iraq, but Rev Bruce Neill said: “He
was being true to his own aspirations and was living his life in the
way he chose.”
