We've followed Alissa Rubin as she's covered wars for many years. Today she went down in a copter crash covering the Kurd-Isis war, got at least broken wrists and concussion, as pilot died. Allegedly an accident. A photog with her was not badly hurt. Another photog, the great Moises Saman, captured the aftermath below in what will likely ranks as one of the photos of the year.
