Gene Boyd Lumawag, Mindanews
12 November 2004

The news photographer Gene Boyd Lumawag was shot by a lone sniper on 12 November 2004 while on assignment for the local news agency Mindanews on Jolo island, an Islamist bastion in the southern Philippines. The gunman escaped and no arrests were made.

Aged 26, Lumawag was preparing a report on Aid al-Fitr, the Muslim festivity that marks the end of Ramadan. He was hit by a 45mm bullet in the forehead as he was heading towards the pier in the town of Jolo to photograph the sunset.
