Sebastian Junger, who collaborated with photographer Tim Hetherington on the Oscar-winning war documentary Restrepo, says he's going to give up front-line war reporting because of Hetherington's death. Hetherington and fellow photographer Chris Hondros were killed by a mortar round in Misrata, Libya, on April 20. "I'm not going to do any more front-line reporting, because I don't want to put my wife through what I went through with Tim," he told the Times Reed Johnson. But Junger continues to write. He has a new book out, War, and this month eulogized his late friend for Vanity Fair.
