Fox News cameraman Pierre Zakrzewski was killed in Ukraine

A veteran Fox News cameraman was killed while covering the invasion of Ukraine, the network said on Tuesday.

Pierre Zakrzewski, 55, was with Fox correspondent Benjamin Hall when their vehicle came under fire Monday in Horenka, a northwestern Kyiv suburb, Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott said in a statement.

“Today is a heartbreaking day for Fox News Media and for all the journalists who risk their lives to break the news,” Scott said.

Hall was injured in the incident and was hospitalized.

Zakrzewski was a veteran conflict photographer who had worked for Fox in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan.

Scott added, “He was deeply committed to telling the story and his courage, professionalism and work ethic were well known by journalists across all media.”

“He was very popular – everyone in the media industry who has covered a foreign story knew and respected Pierre.”

Scott wrote that Zakrzewski helped Afghans who worked for Fox News during the US military campaign in Afghanistan to flee the country after the Taliban overran the American-backed government in the weeks leading up to the troop withdrawal.

“Last year he played a key role in getting our Afghan freelancers and their families out of the country after the US pullout,” Scott wrote.

Zakrzewski’s death comes days after the award-winning journalist and former New York Times contributor Brent Renaud, 51, was killed by Russian forces near Kyiv while sitting in his vehicle after passing through a checkpoint.
