Cameraman Casualty

MOSCOW -- A Russian cameraman, returning from covering the military operation in southern Russia, was killed when he was hit by an airplane taxiing on the runway, Interfax said Tuesday.

Mikhail Stepanov-Molotov died of injuries after being struck Monday night by a Tu-154 airliner on the tarmac at the Chkalovsky airport outside Moscow, the report said.

Stepanov-Molotov, who worked for the NTV television network, had just returned from filming Russia's military operation against militants in Chechnya, the report said.
