I have just received the sad and shocking news that Tim Hetherington has been killed on assignment in Libya.

Tim was working with Chris Hondros when they took mortar fire on Tripoli Street, the main thoroughfare leading into the center of Misrata.

It is now confirmed that Chris has died as well.

Tim was a friend and colleague.

Rest in peace Tim and Chris.
