An ISIS sniper is reported to have fatally shot Dutch photojournalist, Jeroen Oerlemans. The Guardian reports that the shooting took place in Sirte, a city over which ISIS have been fighting to control for a year. Oerlemans had been there covering the ongoing conflict in Libya for Belgian publication, Knack.
Eike den Hertog of the Beeldunie photo agency said of Oerlemans, “He wasn’t a cowboy. He was prudent, and very smart”. Hertog has worked with Oerlemans for much of the last twenty years. Oerlemans was scheduled to return home on Monday.
