Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Danish Siddiqui killed in Afghanistan
BBC, 17 Jul 2021
Indian photojournalist Danish Siddiqui was killed on Friday while covering a clash between Afghan security forces and Taliban fighters near a border crossing with Pakistan.
The 41-year-old, who worked with Reuters for more than a decade, covered the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the Hong Kong protests and Nepal earthquakes.
In 2018, he won the Pulitzer Prize in feature photography. He won it alongside colleague Adnan Abidi and five others for their work documenting the violence faced by Myanmar's minority Rohingya community.
Recently, his photos of mass funerals held at the peak of India's devastating second Covid wave went viral and won him global praise and recognition.
