Al-Jazeera says a cameraman for the pan-Arab satellite station has been killed near the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi.
It was the first death of a journalist since the Libyan uprising began on Jan. 15.
The station identified the slain journalist as Ali Hassan al-Jaber but did not specify his nationality. It said he was killed in what it called an “armed ambush” on an Al-Jazeera crew in the Hawari area near Benghazi, which is the headquarters of the rebellion seeking to oust Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi.
The station said Saturday a correspondent was also wounded.
It did not say who it thought was behind the attack.
Most of eastern Libya remains under rebel control, though pro-government forces have retaken territory in the past several days.
