Restrepo co-director Tim Hetherington killed in afghanistan

Restrepo" co-director Tim Hetherington, who was killed Wednesday by a rocket-propelled grenade while working in Libya, had dedicated much of his career to showing humanity in the face of conflict. The 40-year old photojournalist was working on a freelance assignment in Misurata, one of the hotspots in the ongoing Libyan rebellion.

Hetherington had been in Libya since April 10 and was killed along with Getty photographer Chris Hondros. Two other photogs, Guy Martin and Michael Brown, were also injured. A rep for Hetherington said although it was unclear which side was responsible for the attack, it occurred while Col. Muammar Gaddafi's forces were being pushed back.

Hetherington last tweeted on April 19, "In besieged Libyan city of Misurata. Indiscriminate shelling by Qaddafi forces. No sign of NATO."

Hondros covered conflicts including in Kosovo, Lebanon, Iraq and Afghanistan. An award-winning Getty photog, his work appeared in major U.S. newspapers and mags.
