Mourning Anthony Shadid’s Passing

The Society of Professional Journalists’ International Journalism Committee wishes to expresses its sadness over the loss of Anthony Shadid yesterday (2/16) while he was on assignment in Syria.

The Washington Post describes Shadid as one of the most incisive and honored foreign correspondents of his generation.

The two-time Pulitzer Prize winner was working for the New York Times when he apparently suffered a fatal asthma attack. He was 43.
