Mohammad Nabbous, face of citizen journalism in Libya, is killed | World news | guardian.co.uk
Mohamed Nabbous somehow got around every Internet blockade and dragged the news out of Benghazi, Libya, at great risk. His fear and determination to overcome it was unmistakeable when I first saw it.
Nabbous apparently died in a hail of gunfire as Gaddafi's troops assaulted Benghazi this weekend. This is the last clip, a phone interview cut short:

Mohammad Nabbous was my primary contact in Libya, and the face of Libyan citizen journalism. And now he's dead, killed in a firefight.

CNN put on a nice segment:

Here's a pretty awesome moment from Feb 26 w CNN reporters joking around about the Ghaddafi Drugs Coffee thing:

A nice writeup: A NEW WAR/My Friend Mo « C. Dalton Brigham

Another nice memorial video:



Nabbous isn't the only one who put it on the line. Al-Jazeera cameraman Ali Hassan Al Jaber also was shot outside Benghazi last week. Till we meet again, friends, the truth still won't arrive freely.
