Tim Hetherington RIP

Late yesterday came the sad news that British photojournalist and film director Tim Hetherington was killed in a mortar attack in the Libyan city of Misrata. He and his camera were always in the thick of the fighting to get the most dramatic shots. Above is his photo of US soldiers Sergeant Joshua McDonough and Specialist Miguel Gutierrez firing grenades and automatic weapons from the 'Restrepo' bunker after coming under attack in Afghanistan. He won the prestigious World Press Photo Award 2008 for his photo of an exhausted US soldier (CLICK for my post and a link to more of his photos).

This is says that Libya is not safe at this time foreigners who are living Libya now they have to leave that country unless they cant live safely because now Libya has no leadership the other countries have to try to discuss with the Libyan government and opposition leaders to bring them for peace talks.

Gaddafi's only interest is exterminating his enemies. His peace offers are just attempts to bamboozle the West. Without brave photojournalists like Tim, we wouldn't know what was going on in countries such as Libya.
