Check out photographs and an interview with Dith Pran at NYTimes.com.
This is a nice quote by Bill Keller, Executive Editor of the New York Times:
To all of us who have worked as foreign reporters in frightening places, Pran reminds us of a special category of journalistic heroism — the local partner, the stringer, the interpreter, the driver, the fixer, who knows the ropes, who makes your work possible, who often becomes your friend, who may save your life, who shares little of the glory, and who risks so much more than you do.
Rest in peace.
