Anthony Shadid, Pulitzer Prize-winning foreign correspondent for the New York Times, has died of an asthma attack while on assignment in Syria. Shadid was an incredible journalistic talent.

The Times executive editor Jill Abramson has said in a statement:

Anthony died as he lived — determined to bear witness to the transformation sweeping the Middle East and to testify to the suffering of people caught between government oppression and opposition forces.
