Our friend and comrade, photojournalist Ali Mustafa was killed while working in Aleppo, Syria today alongside seven others. They were killed by a bomb dropped from a Syrian government aircraft.
Ali was active in CAIA for several years. Those who knew Ali will remember him for his courage, commitment, generosity, and sweetness. Our thoughts are with Ali’s friends and family.
See some of Ali’s recent photographs from Syria here. A website dedicated to preserving and celebrating the legacy of Ali Mustafa may be found here.
