"Restrepo" Director Killed in Libya

Posted: April 20th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Restrepo" Director Killed in LibyaSubmit Comment
The "Restrepo" documentary is about the dangers and horrors of war in Afghanistan. It was directed by Tim Hetherington and Sebastian Junger, and went on to be nominated for an Oscar this year.

ABC News has now learned that Hetherington was killed today in Libya. The award-winning photojournalist reportedly died when a rocket-propelled grenade exploded near photographers on the frontlines in the city of Misurata.

And it's been reported that a second photographer, Chris Hondros, was also killed. Three other journalists are believed to have been injured in the attack as well.

Hetherington, who was 41 at the time of his death, tweeted about his current conditions the day before his death: "In besieged Libyan city of Misrata. Indiscriminate shelling by Qaddafi forces. No sign of NATO."

Maybe he found the UFO that crashed at Roswell. Or the guy on the grassy knoll, and the shadow government had to put them down.

Sad to hear it... its always good to see people who truly care about the films they make. These guys risked their lives and lost their lives in order to bring knowledge and truth to this world. Respectable. Hopefully more people will do what these guys did. It takes balls, these guys had them. They had some that most people could not hope to match

Restrepo was a great doc*mentary. But yes, they knew the risks of being out there. R.I.P. to them and to all others who have fallen for this ridiculos war.
