Teenage photographer Molhem Barakat killed in Syria Teenage photographer Molhem Barakat killed in Syria Presentation Transcript

  • Barakat, que trabajaba como fotógrafo independiente para Reuters, perdió la vida mientras cubría los enfrentamientos en Alepo, cuentan los activistas. Molhem Barakat murió el viernes de la semana pasada mientras tomaba fotografías de una batalla por un hospital entre los rebeldes y las fuerzas aliadas del presidente Bashar al-Assad. Los rebeldes acusaron a las fuerzas gubernamentales de convertir el hospital Kindi en barracas. Además de cubrir el conflicto, Barakat fotografiaba la vida cotidiana de los sirios en la ciudad dividida, que solía ser el centro comercial de Siria. La guerra civil en Siria se ha cobrado ya la vida de más de 100.000 personas desde 2011 y muchos sirios han tenido que huir a los países vecinos. Barakat había enviado decenas de fotografías a Reuters desde mayo de este año. Muchas de estas aparecieron en publicaciones de todo el mundo.
  • The 17-year-old, who worked for news agency Reuters on a freelance basis, took dozens of photographs capturing the city's unrelenting violence. His portfolio is equally weighted with images depicting civilian life in the divided city. The teenager had been sending images to Reuters since May, with many of his photographs being published around the world.
