“She is not a war journalist, but rather a human journalist." — Hiroshi Yamamoto on his daughter Mika who was shot and killed earlier this week while covering the Syrian war in Aleppo.
Via Reporters Without Borders:

Yamamoto was the fifth foreign journalist to be killed since the start of the war in Syria, following Gilles Jacquier, a French reporter for France 2, on 11 January 2012 in Homs; French photographer Rémy Ochlik and Marie Colvin, a US reporter for the Sunday Times, on 22 February 2012 in Bab Amru, and Ali Chaabane, a Lebanese journalist working for Lebanon’s Al-Jadeed TV, on 9 April 2012…
…Around 30 Syrian journalists and citizen-journalists have also been killed since the start of the war.

The New York Times is carrying the last footage filmed by Yamamoto, as well as a video from her husband about her death.
