Ban on Photography of Military Caskets Lifted

As reported by the AP, "an 18-year ban on news coverage of the return of war dead, allowing photographs of flag-covered caskets when families of the fallen troops agree." The AP also issued a statement in response, explaining that it will now be able "to augment our coverage of wars abroad in a more complete fashion by being able to document these sad homecomings of America's war dead with the dignity and respect they deserve."
