AP photographer killed in Afghanistan

 

   Associated Press is reporting today that an Afghan police commander opened fire  on two AP journalists inside a security forces base in eastern Afghanistan, killing prize-winning photographer Anja Niedringhaus and wounding veteran correspondent Kathy Gannon.

   Niedringhaus, 48, who had covered conflict zones from the Balkans in the 1990s to Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan and was part of a team of AP photographers who won the Pulitzer Prize in 2005, died instantly of her wounds, according to AP.

    The Washington Post story here also includes a link to a collection of the photographer's amazing work.
