Reuters photographer Adrees Latif has won the 2008 Pultizer Prize for Breaking News Photography for his image of a fatally wounded Japanese photographer at a street protest in Yangor, Myanmar.

Kenji Nagai was shot by Burmese troops who opened fire on a crowd of protesters during a street demonstration in Yangor, Myanmar. Latif's image shows the journalist continuing to take photographs even as he lay wounded on the ground. He had been filming the anti-government protests for several days leading up to the attack and later died of a shot wound to the chest.

The prize is awarded for “a distinguished example of breaking news photography in black and white or colour, which may consist of a photograph or photographs, a sequence or an album, in print or online or both.”

Latif won the prize for "his dramatic photograph of the Japanese videographer, sprawled on the pavement, fatally wounded during a street demonstration in Myanmar," the Pulitzer Prize board said.


Latif received a prize of $10,000 for the award.
