Media – Death of journalist Hervé Ghesquière (14 June 2017)

We want to pay tribute to journalist Hervé Ghesquière, a France Télévisions foreign correspondent, who died on June 14.

We extend our condolences to his family as well as to the France Télévisions editorial team.

Hervé Ghesquière was driven by his passion for his work and had been held hostage in Afghanistan; he travelled all over the world, covering conflict areas with courage and professionalism.

He was a tireless advocate for the freedom of the press.
