Vietnam war reporter Malcolm Browne dies | BBC News

A journalist who captured an iconic image of a burning South Vietnamese monk in 1963 has died at the age of 81.

Associated Press (AP) correspondent Malcolm Browne won a Pulitzer Prize for his reporting from Vietnam in 1964.

But his photograph of Thich Quang Duc, an elderly monk who set himself on fire in Saigon, became one of the first defining images of the escalating conflict.

Browne died near his Vermont home after a long battle with Parkinson’s disease.
