A team of three Arab journalists–among them Egyptian reporter Maggie Michael and Egyptian photographer Nariman El-Mofty–won the 2019 Pulitzer Prize in international reporting for their coverage of the Yemen crisis, becoming the first Egyptian winners ever, AP reported. Michael, based in Cairo, has been working with AP since 2002, covering political and religious conflicts in the Middle East. She is also known for her investigative reporting on fatalities in Iraq alongside AP’s team. This win follows AP’s Pulitzer in 2016, and comes as its 53rd Pulitzer in history. Moreover, after AP’s coverage of Yemen’s brutal famine, the United Nations rushed food and medicine to areas where AP revealed individuals suffering from deadly starvation.
