Ramzan Mezhidov (1967-1999), was a freelance Chechen cameraman. On
October 29, 1999, together with Shamil Gigayev, a cameraman for
independent Nokh Cho television station in Grozny, he was killed
during a Russian air strike on refugees fleeing Chechnya. Before
working for Moscow-based Centre TV, Mezhidov had worked as a
freelance for the German ARD between the Chechen conflicts. During
the First Chechen War, Mezhidov had been a valuable asset to the
Centre TV throughout the Northern Caucasus, particularly in the
Republic of Dagestan. On October 29, 1999, together with other
journalists he was covering a large refugee convoy from Grozny to
Nazran in neighboring Ingushetia en route along the Baku-Rostov
highway. As the convoy approached the Chechen town of Shami-Yurt, a
Russian fighter bomber fired several air-to-ground missiles,
hitting a busload of refugees.
