Slain photojournalist "showed calm" amid chaos

Family and friends say goodbye to Anya Niedringhaus, the Associated Press photojournalist killed in Afghanistan more than a week ago. Her funeral was held Saturday at a monastery near her birthplace of Hoexter, Germany. With messages of mourning on display, she was remembered for her strength and resilience. (SOUNDBITE) (English) SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT AND EXECUTIVE EDITOR OF THE ASSOCIATED PRESS, KATHLEEN CARROLL: "She showed calm, while all around was chaos. And I believe that is why her pictures from terrible places resonated with so many people around the world. She found their dignity, she found the quiet, human moments that connected people in great strife to all the rest of us around the world." Niedringhaus and her colleague, correspondent Kathy Gannon, were attacked by an Afghan policeman. The two were in a remote town on Afghanistan's border with Pakistan to cover last week's elections. The AP says Gannon's condition remains stable.
