Tim Hetherington, R. I. P.

Mail Online: "A highly acclaimed British journalist was tonight feared to have been killed in a mortar attack by forces loyal to Colonel Gaddafi inside the besieged city of Misrata.

Tim Hetherington, 41, a four time winner of the world press photographer award, reportedly died along with an American agency journalist when they were apparently deliberately targeted by Gaddafi's forces.

Born in Liverpool and educated at Oxford Univeristy, Mr Hetherington also won an award last year at the Sundance Film festival for his highly-acclaimed documentary Restrepo, a film about the war in Afghanistan. The film was nominated for an Oscar this year."
