Journalist, Harry Burton

Harry Burton
Australian journalist and cameraman, Harry Burton, was kidnapped by the Taliban and later murdered on along with three other journalists.

He moved to Afghanistan in 2001 to cover the ongoing conflict there, working for Reuters at the time. On November of that year he was riding in a Jeep from Jalalabad to Kabul, just a few days after the Taliban fell, when his convoy was stopped and passengers ordered to get out.

He was killed with three other journalists, Julio Fuentes of the Spanish paper El Mundo, Azizullah Haidari of Reuters, and Maria Grazia Cutulli of Italy's Corriere della Sera. Their mutilated bodies were found on 19th November.
