The New York Times's LENS blog reported that Emilio Morenatti, a 40-year-old photographer for The Associated Press was badly wounded Tuesday in southern Afghanistan when the vehicle in which he was riding was struck by a roadside bomb. Morenatti's work from the Middle East has been likened to artwork. He currently is on his way to world class treatment in a hospital in the UAE.

All media (mainstream and blogs) reporting these news are unanimous in their praise for Morenatti's remarkable talent, his sensitivity and commitment to photojournalism. May he be well soon.
