A decade after his death in Libya, Tim Hetherington is remembered by Peter Bergen, CNN’s national security analyst, in a tribute on CNN. “Tim lived and worked in the toughest environments in the world … where he died while chronicling violence in the war-torn city of Misrata. But he was never jaded by those experiences, nor was he a showboat about his many years on the front lines. He was a very gentle man. A gentleman.” To read the full piece, please see the CNN website.
