Rohingya, NSA spying reports win Pulitzer prizes

Reuters won a Pulitzer Prize on Monday for international reporting on the violent persecution of a Muslim minority in Myanmar, the Pulitzer Prize Board at Columbia University announced.

The board commended Jason Szep and Andrew Marshall of Reuters for their “courageous reports” on the Rohingya, who in their efforts to flee the Southeast Asian country, “often falls victim to predatory human-trafficking networks.”

Stephen Adler, Reuters Editor-in-Chief, said in a statement he was “immensely proud” of the “high-impact series.”

“For two years, Reuters reporters have tirelessly investigated terrible human-rights abuses in a forgotten corner of the Muslim world, bringing the international dimensions of the oppressed Rohingya of Myanmar to global attention,” he said.

“What we were writing about was under-reported,” Szep said from Washington. “I hope through this, there is greater international attention of the risks and presence of religious violence in Myanmar.”
