Danish Siddiqui, a Pulitzer Prize-winning Indian photojournalist with Reuters news agency, was killed on Friday covering fighting between Afghan forces and the Taliban near the Pakistan border, agencies reported, citing an army commander.

Afghan forces were fighting to retake Spin Boldak in Kandahar province when Siddiqui and a senior officer were killed in Taliban crossfire, the commander said. Siddiqui was embedded with Afghan special forces in the former Taliban bastion of Kandahar.

Siddiqui, 38, who grew up in New Delhi, is survived by his wife Rike and two young children. He was part of a team that was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Feature Photography in 2018 for documenting Myanmar’s Rohingya refugee crisis, a series that judges described as “shocking photographs that exposed the world to the violence Rohingya refugees faced in fleeing Myanmar.” AGENCIES
