Israel’s senseless air-strike on crowded Gaza locations has now claimed the life a 11-month-old boy, who was the son of a BBC Arabic correspondent.
The photo of Jihad Misharawi, BBC Arabic Correspondent carrying his son’s body and crying his heart-out is really very painful to watch. This photo was published on the front page of Thursday’s Washington Post.
“This is a particularly difficult moment for the whole bureau in Gaza,” BBC World editor Jon Williams wrote in a memo to colleagues. “We’re fortunate to have such a committed and courageous team there. It’s a sobering reminder of the challenges facing many of our colleagues.”
