AFPNajib, 23, a freelance photographer for the Lebanese magazine Al-Jaras and Agence France-Presse, was the sole journalist to be killed when Israel began attacks on Lebanon in response to a cross-border raid by the Lebanese Shiite group Hezbollah.

Najib was hit by shrapnel from a missile while in a taxi on the road between the villages of Sadiqeen and Qana, according to news reports. Najib, who died at the scene, was trying to meet a convoy of villagers fleeing the Israeli bombardment of south Lebanon.
