Two US journalists were killed in Libya Wednesday, the Business Insider reported.

The website reported that Tim Hetherington — who was nominated for an Oscar this year with co-director Sebastian Junger for “Restrepo,” a documentary about US troops in Afghanistan — was killed in Misrata along with fellow photojournalist Chris Hondros.

The source for the information was Andre Liohn, a fellow photographer who announced the news on his Facebook page.

“Sad news Tim Hetherington died in Misrata now when covering the front line. Chris Hondros is in a serious status. Michel Brown and Guy are wounded but fine.”

Liohn, who claimed to be at a hospital in Misrata, later reported on his feed that Hondros had died.

Hondros was a Pulitzer Prize-nominated photojournalist whose work appeared in the New York Times, Newsweek, and the Economist, according to Business Insider.
