Nepal photographers organise candlelight vigil in memory of Reuters photojournalist Danish SiddiquiPhotojournalist Club members gathered at Boudha to honour the celebrated photographer who was killed while covering clashes between Afghan security forces and Taliban last week.
Photojournalist Club, an umbrella organisation of Nepali photo journalists, on Tuesday organised a candlelight vigil in the Capital in honour of Reuters photojournalist Ahmad Danish Siddiqui, who was killed while covering a clash between Afghan security forces and Taliban fighters on July 16.
During the candlelight vigil organised at Boudhanath Stupa, the Club condemned the killing of the celebrated photojournalist.
Siddiqui was part of the Reuters photography team to win the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Feature Photography for documenting the Rohingya refugee crisis, a series described by the judging committee as "shocking photographs that exposed the world to the violence Rohingya refugees faced in fleeing Myanmar".
A Reuters photographer since 2010, Siddiqui's work spanned the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the Rohingya refugee crisis, the Hong Kong protests and Nepal earthquakes.
In recent months, his photographs capturing the coronavirus pandemic in India have been published across the world.
Here are some images of the event held in honour of Siddiqui by Post photographer Angad Dhakal.
