Colleagues are mourning the death of Mohamed Ben Khalifa, a freelance photographer who worked for RT’s video agency Ruptly and AP. Khalifa was killed by a stray shell south of Tripoli while on the job. Ben Khalifa was killed on Saturday near Libya's capital, Tripoli, which has seen a flare-up of violence between rival militias since Wednesday. Ben Khalifa is survived by his wife and five-month-old baby daughter. Ben Khalifa is the 14th journalist or media worker killed since the onset of the Libyan unrest and subsequent Western intervention in 2011.
