No progress has been made in repatriating Anton Hammerl’s remains to South Africa.
This is according to family friend Bronwyn Friedlander, who lives in Britain.
Hammerl was shot in the Libyan desert in early April while working as a photo journalist in the country.
It was initially believed that he had been captured by soldiers loyal to Muammar Gaddafi, but it emerged six-weeks later that he had in fact been killed.
Friedlander says the Hammerl family realises that repatriating Anton’s body will not be an easy process.
