Doctors and medics attend to Getty photojournalist Chris Hondros (foreground) and photojournalist Tim Hetherington (obscured) in a Misrata hospital. Hetherington, the co-director of Oscar-nominated war documentary "Restrepo," died in the besieged Libyan town of Misrata, doctors said. Hondros was in critical condition in intensive care, doctors at the hospital where he was being treated said. He had suffered brain injuries. The photojournalists were among a group caught by mortar fire on Tripoli Street, the main thoroughfare leading into the center of Misrata, the only major rebel-held town in western Libya and besieged by Muammar Gaddafi's forces for more than seven weeks.
