(Reuters) – Fox News cameraman Pierre Zakrzewski was killed in Ukraine after the vehicle he was traveling in was hit by approaching fire, the US network said on Tuesday.

Zakrzewski, 55, was reporting with fellow Fox News journalist Benjamin Hall on Monday when they were attacked near the capital Kyiv, Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott said in a note to employees. Halle remains in the hospital.

He was the second journalist to be killed in the Ukraine conflict. Brent Renaud, an American filmmaker and journalist, was shot dead by Russian forces in the town of Irpin, in Ukraine’s Kyiv region, a regional police chief said on Sunday.

Zakrzewski was a veteran war zone photographer who had covered multiple conflicts for Fox News, including Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria. From London he has been working in Ukraine since February.

Scott described Zakrzewski as a versatile journalist who has held a variety of roles, including photographer, engineer, editor and producer, “under immense pressure with enormous skill”.
