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.
