WASHINGTON (AFP) - Acclaimed US photographer James Nachtwey was shot in the leg but not badly hurt in pre-election clashes in Bangkok on Saturday, Feb 1, 2014, his long-time employer Time magazine said.

"The bullet passed through but didn't hit the bone," said Ms Kira Pollack, the publication's director of photography.

"Amazingly, he went right back out and started working again," Ms Pollack - who was in touch with Mr Nachtwey via text message - said in a story on Time's website.

"That's who he is."
