Photographer for the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter, Paul Hansen, has been shot outside Mosul in Iraq, writes the newspaper itself.
Hansen (left) was hit by two shots on Sunday morning and was taken to surgery during the afternoon for injuries claimed to be less serious.
Paul Hansen and his colleague Erik Ohlsson were with other journalists about three miles outside Mosul when they were shot by a sniper.
A shot hit Hansen's helmet and another shot hit his vest. At the hospital, it was found that he was hit in the back by a shot from an automatic rifle.
Many journalists are now outside Mosul to cover the offensive against the city occupied by the Islamic State.
The offensive is carried out by the Iraqi army supported by Kurdish forces.
