A bittersweet update to the story of killed Libyan journalist  Mohammed “Mo” Nabbous. The citizen journalist stated a Livestream news channel to capture the life of war-torn Libya. While investigating a report of wounded children, he was shot and killed by sniper fire, and the sounds of his death were caught on camera.

He was survived by a pregnant wife Perdita Nabbous, who recorded an emotional message announcing his death, encouraging others to keep up the fight against the government.

His favorite quote, Elizabeth Flock wrote in March shortly after his death, was, “A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle.” On YouTube on Wednesday, Perdita Nabbous posted a tribute to her dead husband by introducing their child to the world. Maya Mohamed Nabbous is shown in all the adorableness of a newborn, sleeping peacefully on a Libyan flag. “This is dedicated to the loving father who never got to see his first and only baby,” the post reads.
