Photographer Joe Rosenthal, who won a Pulitzer Prize for his immortal picture of six Second World War soldiers raising an American flag over battle-scarred Iwo Jima, has died. He was 94.
Rosenthal died on Sunday of natural causes at an assisted living facility in the San Francisco suburb of Novato, said his daughter, Anne. "He was a good and honest man, he had real integrity," she said.
His photo, for The Associated Press, was the model for the Iwo Jima Memorial near Arlington National Cemetery.
