Reuters journalist Jason Szep celebrates Pulitzer Prize

It's the top honor every journalist aspires to. And after the Pulitzer Prize winners were announced in New York, Reuters had a reason to celebrate. Reuters journalist Jason Szep is floored by his Pulitzer for international reporting on the violent persecution of Rohingyas in Myanmar. (SOUNDBITE) (English) JASON SZEP, REUTERS JOURNALIST AND PULITZER PRIZE WINNER FOR INTERNATIONAL REPORTING, SAYING: "Disbelief, disbelief, I mean I heard one of our reporters said, 'Jason, you've won a prize.' And I said, 'What?' And I wandered down to where this reporter was, looked on the web page that was up and it was the Pulitzer web page and still I didn't believe it when I saw it." He and fellow reporter Andrew R.C. Marshall scooped the agency's first Pulitzer for text reporting. In their efforts to flee Myanmar, the Rohingya often fall victim to human-trafficking. An issue Szep hopes will garner more attention. (SOUNDBITE) (English) JASON SZEP, REUTERS JOUR
