    Well, unfortunately I just heard that the worst has occurred, and according to the freshest article at the New York Times, it is confirmed. Hondros did not live long after sustaining major brain tissue loss during the attack. He survived in a coma for a few hours despite this, hence the initial confusion. Condolences to his family, friends, and co-workers, who as far as I can tell greatly admired and respected him.

    At least there is some positive news; the two other journalists with them, Guy Martin and Christopher Brown, survived.

    It turns out that Liohn was not injured, as initially reported, but reported the story from the triage center.

    Sounds like Heatherington shot a Hassy for at least some of his work. Not sure if it is a new digital one or a film one.

    Terrible news. I'm grateful for the work they've done. May they rest in peace. May their wounded colleagues pull through.

    It cannot be overstated what a loss this is, to the photojournalism community and for everyone who would see their work. Chris was a remarkable man, a compassionate and skilled photographer who had a deep desire to go where the pictures were and bring them back to those who could not. He had an enormous network of friends, I am proud to count myself among them from our time together in graduate school. Chris, we all miss you so much, already.

    From a postcard, 1996. He's in North Carolina, ready to take on the world with an F3:

    A pretty touching article written by Hondros about his experiences with a Liberian soldier: http://digitaljournalist.org/issue0511/dis_hondros.html.
