SAD NEWS: FOX Journalist, One Other Killed In His Vehicle
Pierre Zakrzewski had been travelling in a vehicle near Kyiv with correspondent Benjamin Hall, who was injured, and Ukrainian journalist Oleksandra Kuvshinova, who was also killed.
A cameraman at the US network Fox News has been killed by an “artillery shelling by Russian troops” while reporting on the war in Ukraine.
Pierre Zakrzewski was working with correspondent Benjamin Hall when their vehicle was hit in the north-eastern part of the village of Gorenka, near Kyiv.
Fox News announced the attack and Mr Hall’s injury on Monday by saying the reporter “was injured while newsgathering outside of Kyiv in Ukraine”.
Ukrainian journalist Oleksandra Kuvshinova was also reported to be killed in the attack.
Presenter Bill Hemmer said: “Pierre Zakrzewski was an absolute legend at this network and his loss is devastating.
“He has been with us for years, covering wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria. Our CEO Susanne Scott noted a few moments ago that Pierre jumped in to help out with all sorts of roles in the field – photographer and engineer and editor and producer and he did it all under immense pressure and with tremendous skill.”
