(AP) A Boston Globe reporter wounded in the Middle East is to receive a distinguished alumni award from his alma mater next week, but his situation may prevent him from attending.
Anthony Shadid, 33, was shot in the shoulder Sunday in the West Bank city of Ramallah. He was treated at a Palestinian hospital and evacuated to Jerusalem, where he was reported in good condition.
Shadid is a 1990 University of Wisconsin-Madison graduate who is to be presented with the Ralph O. Nafziger Award on April 12.
But school officials don’t know if he will be able to attend.
“I think this is the first time we’ve ever had this happen,” Sharon Dunwoody, director of the School of Journalism and Mass Communications, said Tuesday. “I really hope he can make it.”
Shadid is a Washington-based reporter for the Globe.
