Godspeed Tim Hetherington

Yes, you read that correctly.

Unfortunately, Jimbo and the Tankerbabe let me know that film maker and cameraman extraordinaire, Tim Hetherington, was killed in Libya.  Details at this time are thin.

Award-winning war photographer Tim Hetherington and Getty photographer Chris Hondros were killed in Misrata, Libya, today in a mortar attack, colleagues told ABC News.

Hetherington, one of the best known photojournalists, produced powerful pieces for ABC News' "Nightline" from the Korengal Valley, Afghanistan, and for the documentary "Restrepo," which won an award at the Sundance film festival last year.

Three other journalists were wounded in the same attack, including Andre Leon and Michael Brown. The identity of the fifth reporter has not yet been confirmed...

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Tim's family and friends.

Godspeed, Tim.
