    The New York Times's Beirut bureau chief, Anthony Shadid, died Thursday, the newspaper announced. He apparently died of an asthma attack in Syria. Tyler Hicks, a photographer with Shadid, carried his body to Turkey. Shadid was one of the journalists reported missing in Libya in March 2011. He was the Baghdad bureau chief of The Washington Post before joining the Times. In his 15-year career, Shadid won the Pulitzer for international reporting twice—covering the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2004 and its withdrawal in 2010.
