 The death of two brave and immensely talented photographers, Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondros, who were killed in action on Wednesday while covering the war in Libya. Two other photojournalists, Guy Martin and Andre Liohn, were also injured in the rocket propelled grenade attack launched from pro-Qaddafi forces.

 I deeply mourn the deaths of Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondors . We  lost a great photojournalist . Personally, I know Tim, When I was a student of Pathshala he visited at  Pathshala and conducted a great workshop, which  I remember and  learned the new era of documentary photography from him.
