Members of Photojournalist Club, Nepal, organised a candlelight vigil in memory of Reuters photojournalist Danish Siddiqui, who was killed while covering a clash between Afghan security forces and Taliban fighters near a border crossing with Pakistan on July 16.
The memorial event was held at Swayambhunath Stupa in Kathmandu on July 20, 2021.
Siddiqui, from India, had been embedded as a journalist with Afghan special forces based in the southern province of Kandhar. He was reporting on fighting between Afghan commandos and Taliban fighters.
He had received the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Feature Photography as a part of the team that documented the Rohingya refugee crisis.
