    A photo from Benjamin Lowy's trip to South Sudan in December, when fighting broke out in Juba between government forces and supporters of a former vice president. In an editorial today, The New York Times writes that “a staggering 3.7 million people, roughly one-third of the population, are facing starvation in South Sudan, where a civil war has created a humanitarian catastrophe.” They add that United Nations officials say South Sudan needs $230 million more in the next 60 days to avoid the worst starvation in Africa since the 1980s, when hundreds of thousands perished in Ethiopia.

    Juba, South Sudan | December 19, 2013 Nuer civilians hiding in the UN Mission base, wait for a chance to collect water after fleeing their homes following brutal battles between government and rebel forces. It is looking increasingly like a campaign of ethnic cleansing began in Juba and spread to the rest of the country, pitting two tribal groups - the Dinka and the Nuer - against each other. #photojournalism #documentary #reportage #southsudan #juba

    FJP — Via the BBC:

    The attack took place in the town of Khost near the border with Pakistan…

    …[The two journalists] had been travelling with election workers delivering ballots in the Tanay district of Khost province.

    An eyewitness said a police unit commander had opened fire on the journalists as they were waiting for their convoy to move inside a security compound.

    The police officer behind the attack was taken into custody after surrendering to other police…

    The BBC’s Afghanistan correspondent, David Loyn, says the election is being protected by the biggest military operation since the fall of the Taliban.

    Nearly 200,000 troops have been deployed across the country to prevent attacks.

    Rings of security have been set up around each polling centre, with the police at the centre and hundreds of troops on the outside.

    Reporting restrictions are in place, limiting what can be broadcast about the candidates.

    For what it’s worth, Niedringhaus was a former Nieman Fellow. Some of her work can be seen on her Tumblr. See also her 2007 essay in Nieman Reports on the emotions of photography, and this 2013 photo essay of her work in Afghanistan from the Atlantic.

    “He was just so incredibly curious about every aspect of war and every aspect of every country he was going to. I don’t think he was obsessed with the ‘bang bang’ moments. He was obsessed with understanding local culture and how the American presences disrupted those traditions and the flow of everyday life. I think you see that throughout this book.” - Mario Tama, Getty Images photographer, on his late colleague Chris Hondros.

    Testament, a collection of Hondros’s photographs and writing, will be published this month. Read more on New York Time Lens
