From a internal press release (may be public by now)

Google Image Search now displays current news images and links to news headlines related to a user's query. For example, a query on Google Image Search for "earth" will likely show relevant news images and links to related news stories at the top of the results pages if "earth" is in the news at the time of the query. This enhancement enables users to find the most recent results through Google Image Search and demonstrates Google's mission to connect people to the information they need.

Great to see the updates, not the coolest look for the images search but still you're bound to see new images quick when your searching for something news-worthy.

Yea, I reported this yesterday at the search engine roundtable. This only works with single words. You can type in "iraq" and get images from google news on iraq BUT you can not type in "united states" and get images from google news on united states. I guess it needs some work.

Dumb question, but: Was the choice for the size of images returned always there?

lol Powdork. I doubt that. Me thinks they are using the same bot/db for this implementation.

I don't think this is any different to the Web/News integration. Its just that in this one, the news image is shown instead of the news description.
