Maya Alleruzzo, a photographer who has covered wars in Iraq and Afghanistan during a 12-year stint in the region, has been named regional photo editor for the Middle East by The Associated Press.
Alleruzzo, 44, joined AP as a staff photographer in Baghdad, Iraq, in 2007. She was embedded throughout the U.S. troop surge that year and was part of a prize-winning team that produced the series “Killer Blue,” chronicling the deployment of a combat platoon in Mosul, Iraq. The team was awarded the Edward R. Murrow prize in the video news documentary category. She remained in Iraq, departing with the final U.S. military unit in the country.
