Joao Silva injured by landmine in Kabul
Greg Kendall-Ball, Photographer, Assistant
Abilene | TX | USA | Posted: 1:40 PM on 10.23.10
->> Just saw this on Nick Kristof's Facebook page:

"I just saw NY Times photographer Joao Silva, a legendary photographer in some of the world's toughest neighborhoods, in Kabul. Today he was seriously injured by a landmine in Kandahar. My heart aches for Joao as we await word on his condition. And I'm reminded again of the courage of so many reporters and photographers based in places like Afghanistan and Iraq."

->> Jim-
Looks like the NYT is footing the bill for the medical. But, there's also been a fund established for his family. Latest reports say he lost parts of both legs. I imagine that will impact his future ability to work.
