Tim Hetherington an award winning film maker, and Chris Hondras a prize-winning photojournalist were killed on Wensday April 20, 2011 in Misrata, Libya while covering the conflict. The two men were hit by a rocket propelled grenade while filming for an organization called Human Rights Watch. Human rights watch sends its condolences to the families of the victims, who had spent their professional lives covering human rights conflicts. The bodies of Hetherington and Hondras were taken from Misrata to Benghazi aboard the Ionian Spirit; a ship brought in by the International Organization for Migration in order to get civilians away from the fighting in Misrata.
