BOSTON In covering world conflicts, New York Times correspondent Anthony Shadid constantly faced danger. He had been shot in the West Bank a decade ago, and kidnapped in Libya just last year.
But it was an apparent asthma attack suffered Thursday, while covering the uprising in Syria, that killed the two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist.
The 43-year-old Shadid formerly worked for The Associated Press, The Washington Post and The Boston Globe.
Boston Globe Editor Martin Baron joined Morning Edition Friday.
