From MSNBC.com: Getty Images photographer Chris Hondros, a Pulitzer Prize finalist who was covering the same battle as Tim Hetherington, has now also died. Both Mr. Hondros and Mr. Hetherington were injured in the fighting between Libyan government forces and rebels in Mizrata. Two other journalists, Guy Martin, and Michael Christopher Brown, have been wounded. More here from the Guardian.
