Oscar-Nominated Filmmaker and Pulitzer Prize-Nominated Photojournalist Reported Dead in Libya
The HuffPo is reporting that Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondros have been reported killed in Misrata while covering the fighting between rebels and Qaddafi forces:
Two highly acclaimed photojournalists have been killed in Libya, it was reported Wednesday.
Tim Hetherington, an Oscar-nominated filmmaker and photographer, and Chris Hondros, a Pulitzer Prize-nominated photojournalist, were reported to have been killed in the city of Misrata while covering fighting between Muammar Gaddafi’s forces and Libyan rebels. Andre Liohn, a fellow photographer who was injured during the same battle, wrote on Facebook on Wednesday that the two had died “when covering the front line.” Liohn initially said that Hetherington had died, but soon wrote on his wall, “Chris Hondros died now.”
