The Taoiseach Micheal Martin says he's "deeply disturbed" after a journalist and Irish citizen was killed in Ukraine.
Fox News has confirmed that cameraman Pierre Zakrzewski was killed in Ukraine yesterday when a vehicle he was travelling in was "struck by incoming fire".
Deeply disturbed and saddened by the killing of Irish citizen and journalist Pierre Zakrzewski and one of his colleagues today.
My thoughts are with their families, friends and fellow journalists.
We condemn this indiscriminate and immoral war by Russia on #Ukraine.

Mr Zakrzewski was outside Kyiv, at the time. His colleague was seriously injured and remains in hospital in Ukraine.
"It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that we share the news this morning regarding our beloved cameraman Pierre Zakrzewski. Pierre was killed in Horenka, outside of Kyiv, Ukraine," Fox News CEO Suzanne Scott said.
"Pierre was a war zone photographer who covered nearly every international story for Fox News from Iraq to Afghanistan to Syria during his long tenure with us. His passion and talent as a journalist were unmatched."
Mr Zakrzewski's death comes days after that of American photojournalist Brent Renaud, who was shot dead in Irpin, a suburb of Kyiv.
