Pulitzer Prize-winning Indian photographer Danish Siddiqui killed in Afghanistan
Famous photographer and Pulitzer Prize winner Danish Siddiqui has been killed. He was Reuters’ chief photographer. Danish Siddiqui was killed while reporting on the current tense situation in the Spin Boldak district of Kandahar.
Spin Boldak, on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, is the site of a direct confrontation between Afghan forces and the Taliban. The Taliban has said it will not stop firing until 7,000 prisoners are released. Fleeing continues in war zones. The Danish came to Afghanistan to film Reuters for the conflict.
