Kaveh Golestan , BBC
2 April 2003

Iranian news photographer Kaveh Golestan, 52, was killed on 2 April 2003 by a mine in Kifri in northern Iraq while working for the BBC.

Golestan was the third journalist working for the British news media to be killed in Iraq since the start of the war on 20 March. He had won a Pulitzer prize for his coverage of the Iranian revolution in 1979 and the gassing of the Kurd population in Halabja by Saddam Hussein’s army in 1988 which left some 5,000 dead.
