Prayers For Their Safety

Terrible news if true. I’m hoping it’s not and will pray for their safety. These are good people.

From Business Insider:

But there are reports that photographers Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondros have been killed in Libya.

The news was first posted on fellow photographer Andre Liohn’s Facebook page.  Liohn is reportedly at the hospital and later updated his status in the comments to say that Hondros has died.

Hetherington was nominated for a Oscar this year for the documentary Restrepo which he co-directed with journalist Sebastian Junger.

Chris Hondros is a Pulitzer-Prize nominated war photographer whose work has appeared in the NYT, Newsweek, and the Economist, to name a few.

Keep them in your prayers regardless of how this turns out.
IndieWire is also reporting this news.
 UPDATE: Reports have been confirmed that, sadly, both men have passed away from their wounds. These were good men whose dedication to their craft and to honesty and factual reporting stood them head and shoulders above so many hack reporters and faux journalists. God Bless them and comfort their families.
