Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Danish Siddiqui killed in Afghanistan

An Afghan commander said that Reuters photojournalist Danish Siddiqui was killed while covering a clash between Afghan security forces and Taliban fighters near a border crossing with Pakistan.

Afghan special forces had been fighting to retake the main market area of Spin Boldak when Mr. Siddiqui and a senior Afghan officer were killed in what they described as Taliban crossfire, the official told Reuters. Mr. Siddiqui had been embedded as a journalist since earlier this week with Afghan special forces based in the southern province of Kandahar. He had been reporting on fighting between Afghan commandos and Taliban fighters.

“We are urgently seeking more information, working with authorities in the region,” Reuters President Michael Friedenberg and Editor-in-Chief Alessandra Galloni said in a statement. “Danish was an outstanding journalist, a devoted husband and father, and a much-loved colleague. Our thoughts are with his family at this terrible time.”
