Journalists Attacked

Danish Siddiqui

KILLED


Spin Boldak, Afghanistan
Danish Siddiqui was killed on July 16, 2021, while covering a clash between Afghan security forces and Taliban fighters in the town of Spin Boldak, near the border with Pakistan, according to Afghan military officials.

Siddiqui, 38, was embedded with Afghan special forces at the time of his death. He was a member of the Reuters photography team that won the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for feature photography for their coverage of Rohingya refugees fleeing Myanmar.

When a journalist is killed covering conflict or on another dangerous assignment, the perpetrators must be held accountable.
