Tribute: Danish, now, above the line of fire

Pulitzer Prize winning Reuters' photojournalist Danish Siddiqui was killed in in Spin Boldak district, Kandahar, Afghanistan, while he was embedded with Afghan Special Forces on a combat-and-rescue mission which came under attack from the Taliban. Earlier this week, his humvee was targeted and Siddiqui managed to capture a visual of one of the rockets hitting the armour plate overhead. He was brilliant at in-depth features, delving deep to reveal the human face caught in conflicts. A selection of his recent works, in tribute to a man who was both brave and empathetic
