In her words:“It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that we share the news this morning regarding our beloved cameraman, Pierre Zakrzewski,” Scott announced.

“Pierre was a war zone photographer who covered nearly every international story for FOX News from Iraq to Afghanistan to Syria during his long tenure with us,” she added.“His passion and talent as a journalist were unmatched.”

Fox News president and executive editor, Jay Wallace, while mourning Zakrezewski on Tuesday said:

“Pierre was a constant in all of our international coverage. I, like countless others, always felt an extra sense of reassurance when arriving on the scene and seeing him with camera in hand.”“The legacy of his positive spirit, boundless energy and eye for the story will carry on,” he added.

THE VENT REPUBLIC reports that Zakrzewski would the second journalist to be killed within two days in the ongoing war in Ukraine. It would be recalled that a former New York Times reporter was killed on Sunday when Russian Millitary forces opened fire on his vehicle.
