AP Soundbite:

U.S. Envoy Stevens (Apr. 21): This is a terrible tragedy, the loss of these two photojournalists. It shows how dangerous the work it is that they do, and it also shows how important it is to protect journalists who are doing difficult and important assignments like they were doing, and we are all very sad and express our condolences to their families and friends. Thank you.
