Franco-German journalist, Lucas von Zabiensky Mebrouk Dolega was killed on January 17th, 2011 in Tunis.

After beginning his work as a photojournalist with the Nouvel Observateur, he went to cover the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in 2002. In 2006, he joined the EPA and EFE agencies and covered world news: clashes around the CPE (First Employment Contract) in Paris in 2006, civil war in North Kivu in the Congo in 2008, the “red shirts” rebellion in Bangkok in 2010, and finally the “Jasmine Revolution” in Tunisia in 2011. On January 14th, 2011, he was hit by a tear gas grenade and died three days later at a clinic.

Lucas Dolega was the first foreign journalist to be killed in Tunisia during the Arab Spring.
