Tragic news comes out that Tim Hetherington, the photojournalist who co-directed “Restrepo” with Sebastian Junger, was killed.
According to reports,
American photojournalists Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondros were killed Wednesday in Libya, where they were covering the ongoing conflict.
The news was first reported by photographer Andre Liohn, as he posted and updated the news on Facebook from the hospital where he, Hetherington and Hondros, were brought after suffering injuries while covering the fighting in Misrata.
Posting on his Twitter account yesterday, Hetherington updated his followers: “In besieged Libyan city of Misrata. Indiscriminate shelling by Qaddafi forces. No sign of NATO.”
