Journalist, Maria Grazia Cutulli

Maria Grazia Cutulli
Italian journalist, Maria Grazia Cutulli, was kidnapped by the Taliban and later murdered along with three other journalists.

She had arrived in Afghanistan in September 2001 to cover the ongoing conflict there, working for Italy's Corriere della Sera. 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.

She was killed with three other journalists, Julio Fuentes of the Spanish paper El Mundo, Azizullah Haidari of Reuters, and Harry Burton of Reuters. Their mutilated bodies were found on 19th November.
