40. "I've covered a lot of conflict over the years, but...Libya were the most heavy of all"


"I've covered a lot of conflict over the years," More said, "but I'd say my days of combat coverage here in Libya were the most heavy of all.

"The battle scenes were absolutely epic."

Photographer Reflects on 'Epic' Libya Battles, Revolution in the Arab World

By: Mike Fritz and Travis Daub


Photographer John Moore is no stranger to combat. As a member of an Associated Press team in 2005, he shared a Pulitzer Prize for breaking news photography for coverage of the war in Iraq and he's done extended stints in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia, South Africa, Mexico and Nicaragua and elsewhere in the last 20 years.

Moore, who now works for Getty Images, also won a host of international awards in 2008 for his exclusive photos of the assassination of former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto.

Yet despite his relative comfort with being on the frontlines, Moore told the NewsHour from his hotel room in Cairo that his latest assignment -a six-week trip that took him to the uprisings in Egypt, Bahrain and Libya - might have been his most dangerous. Moore recorded the interview for us after sneaking out of Benghazi, Libya en route back to his home in Denver.
