Antonio Cassese Obituaries

| No Comments

Antonio Cassese a co-founder of the international war crimes tribunals died on Saturday at age 74 due to cancer.

The New York Times and Reuters reported on this. Reuters focused on his contributions to the founding of the international war crimes tribunals and did not include who he was survived by or any background information on his life.

The New York Times had an extensive article that went deep into his past and had quotes from people who knew Cassese well.

They included who he was survived by at an awkward point in the article, 5 paragraphs before the end of the article. After the survived by section they gave more personal details and examples of the kind of person he was which seemed to me to be a little sloppy, the author could have simply moved the survived by section to the end and it would not have hurt the article in any way.
