US journalist Brent Renaud ‘killed in Ukraine’

Andriy Nebytov, the police chief of the Kyiv region, said on Facebook: “Of course, the profession of a journalist is a risk, but US citizen Brent Renaud paid his life for trying to highlight the aggressor’s ingenuity, cruelty and ruthlessness.”

The New York Times, where Mr Renaud previously contributed, said the organization “is deeply saddened to learn of the death of an American journalist in Ukraine, Brent Renaud”.

It added: “Brent was a talented photographer and filmmaker, but he was not on assignment for @nytimes in Ukraine.”

This is a breaking story and will be updated shortly.
