Remembering… Dutch journalist killed in Russian bombing of Gori


A Dutch television journalist was killed when Russian warplanes bombed the central Georgian city of Gori. The television news station RTL cameraman Stan Storimans, 39, was killed and correspondent Jeroen Akkermans was wounded in the leg in the attack. 

I am deeply sorry for this tragedy and my thoughts go out to Mr. Storimans’ family, his wife and two children. 

Storimans had planned to publish a book this year describing his 20 years of reporting from hotspots like Sri Lanka, Congo, Indonesia, Afghanistan, Iraq and the former Yugoslavia, among others.
