Boston Globe Editor Remembers Former Correspondent Shadid04:37

This article is more than 9 years old.

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.

This program aired on February 17, 2012.
