Noted British foreign correspondent and writer,Edward Behr,dies

Edward Behr, noted British foreign correspondent and writer who penned books on history, good eating and his career as a journalist, has died in Paris. He was 81.

Behr covered conflicts across the globe from the French-Algerian conflict to the Vietnam war for several publications, including Newsweek magazine, during his long career as a foreign correspondent.

His wide travels, fed by reporting experiences, inspired a number of books, including "The Algerian Problem" (1961), "The Last Emperor" (1987), "Hirohito: Behind the Myth" (1989) and "Kiss the Hand You Cannot Bite: The Rise and Fall of the Ceausescus" (1991) about the now-fallen Romanian dictator and his wife.

The Paris-born Behr also had other interests that provided fodder for other books, including "The Artful Eater" (1993) and "Prohibition: Thirteen Years That Changed America" (1996).

He also provided a telling look at his own trade with "Anyone Here Been Raped and Speaks English?" (1981) a query reportedly called out by a British reporter looking for sources during a crisis in Congo.

Behr is survived by his wife, Christian.
