He was accompanying CNN correspondent Phil Black and other reporters who were with an anti-Gadaffi convoy heading to the Libyan town of Sirte

A CNN article statement said: “For an unknown reason, one fighter began shooting his gun, causing others also to shoot. Soon after, the convoy started taking incoming fire. At first it was small arms, quickly followed by RPGs. Two vehicles near the CNN team were hit by at least two RPGs”.
