The Libya shelling that took the life of Restrepo director and war photographer Tim Hetherington has claimed a second life—Getty photographer Chris Hondros. Both men were killed while covering the fighting in Misrata, though the circumstances are unclear. One of Hetherington's last tweets, courtesy of AP: "In besieged Libyan city of Misrata. Indiscriminate shelling by Qaddafi forces. No sign of NATO." Vanity Fair has a tribute to Hetherington and a collection of his photos here, and fellow photographer Andrea Bruce offers a similar tribute to Hondros at NPR. (Read more Tim Hetherington stories.)
