Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondros, two world-renowned war photographers, were killed on Wednesday while on assignment in Libya.

Hetherington, a long-time contributing photographer for Vanity Fair, co-directed the Oscar-nominated documentary Restrepo. Pulitzer-prize nominated Hondros had photographs on page one of The New York Times and on the cover of Newsweek.

Both men were in Misrata covering the conflict between rebels and pro-Muammar Gaddafi forces. Photographer André Liohn confirmed their deaths Wednesday on his Facebook account.
