Reuters photojournalist Danish Siddiqui was killed in the Spin Boldak region of Kandahar, Afghanistan, during clashes.
Over the last two days, Siddiqui has been reporting on the situation in Kandahar in the context of Afghanistan’s internal security situation.
His reports included graphic images of vehicles of the Afghan forces being targeted with rockets.
“Deeply disturbed by the sad news of the killing of a friend, Danish Seddiqi in Kandahar last night. The Indian Journalist & winner of the Pulitzer Prize was embedded with Afghan security forces. I met him 2 weeks ago before his departure to Kabul. Condolences to his family & Reuters,” Afghan ambassador Farid Mamundzay tweeted.
