Chris Hondros, 41, of Getty Images was mortally wounded Wednesday in Libya while on assignment covering the fighting between rebel and government forces, The Brooklyn Paper reports. Tim Hetherington, the director and producer (with Sebastian Junger) of the documentary “Restrepo,” was killed in the same attack. Tim also worked with Umbrage Editions in Dumbo that put out Hetherington’s photography book “Long Story Bit By Bit: Liberia Retold” in 2009.

Chris Hondros was also a Dumbo resident who lived on Bridge Street. This is a tragic and devastating loss for Brooklyn and the USA.
