Photographers killed in Libya are honored in NYC

Two war photographers who were killed in Libya have been honored in New York City at a celebration of some of 2010's best international journalism.

Photographers Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondros were celebrated Thursday night at the Overseas Press Club awards dinner.

The New York Times also received awards, for work in Russia, Thailand, Haiti and Pakistan. The Times' executive editor, Bill Keller, was presented with the OPC President's Award for distinguished service in the field of journalism.

CBS News and the online news organization Pro Publica also won awards.

Hetherington and Hondros were killed last week covering the conflict in Libya.
