The CNN World View programme recently focused on the Azerbaijani journalist Chingiz Mustafayev, who was killed in the conflict zone during the Nagorno-Karabakh war in 1992. Mustafayev, who was posthumously awarded the title of National Hero of Azerbaijan, was renowned for the 18 films he shot about the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenian separatists. His most famous piece of footage is of the aftermath of the Khojaly Massacre which depicted hundreds of bodies strewn across snow-covered fields, and which arguably changed the history of his country after it was shown in a parliamentary session.
