Photojournalist Tim Hetherington killed in Libya

I just heard the tragic news that Tim Hetherington, the award winning photographer and film maker has been killed in the Libyan city of Misrata. I interviewed Tim earlier this year when he was nominated for an Oscar for Restrepo, a documentary about a platoon of soldiers serving in Afghanistan. He was a hugely talented and dedicated photojournalist. Somewhat bewildered by the Hollywood hoopla at the time, he was eager to return to the field to pursue the kind of journalism that he excelled in. This was Tim's last tweet - hours before he died. My deepest sympathies.
