Award-winning journalist found dead in Afghanistan, likely executed by Taliban

The body of Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Danish Siddiqui has been found in Afghanistan where he was likely killed by Taliban after accidentally being left in the country in July.

The “38-year-old Pulitzer prize-winning photojournalist, was killed July 16 along with two other Afghan commandos after the military retreated in a fight to take a town near Afghanistan’s border,” The Hill reported.

“Siddiqui’s body was reportedly found mutilated in Taliban custody. His body was recovered and identified after photos on social media were compared to his body by Reuters and Forensic Equity’s ballistics expert Philip Boyce,” The Hill added.

Reuters published an investigative report noting Siddiqui’s final assignment in Afghanistan. The lengthy details share many photos and and details of his adventures in documenting key events.

The Reuters report noted, “We don’t know exactly where Danish was killed, but we recognised his body when we found three bodies lying by the roadside.”

It added, “He was identified as a journalist by a “PRESS” marking on his jacket. The other two casualties were the Afghan soldiers who were with Siddiqui: Karzai and the medic, identified by the Afghan military only as Abass.”

Siddiqui leaves behind a wife and two children.

I get paid $109 per hour working from home. I never thought I’d be capable to do it but my best buddy makes over $30214 a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The possibility with this is endless.

 I earned $7,000 last month by operating on-line most effectively for five to eight hours on my pc and this was so clean that I in my opinion could not accept it as authentic earlier than running on this website. If you too want to earn this type of huge coin then come and be a part of us. do this internet-website online. GOOD LUCK…. http://www.cashoffer9.com
