RIP: Tim Hetherington

MISRATA, Libya – A western photojournalist was killed and several others were seriously injured in Libya Wednesday while covering battles between Muammar al-Qaddafi’s forces and anti-government rebels, Human Rights Watch confirmed to Fox News.
Tim Hetherington — who was nominated for an Oscar this year with co-director Sebastian Junger for “Restrepo,” a documentary about U.S. troops in Afghanistan — was reportedly killed in the volatile city of Misrata.

I’ve seen “Restrepo” and it was amazing. A completely non-partisan look at the realities of war and the effects on the soldiers who fight it.
