British born Israeli journalist David Landau dead at 67

Posted:
 David Landau, a British born author and journalist who was a former editor-in-chief of Israel's Haaretz newspaper and also worked for the Jerusalem Post, has died. He was 67.

   Haaretz said he died Tuesday. The paper's obituary said he was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor in 2013.

   Landau was Haaretz's chief between 2004 and 2008 and launched its English language edition. Earlier, he worked for many years at the Jerusalem Post as managing editor and diplomatic correspondent.

   Former President Shimon Peres eulogized Landau in a statement praising his "absolute integrity."

   Landau wrote books on Israeli affairs, including biographies of Ariel Sharon and other Israeli leaders.

   He immigrated to Israel from England in 1970.

   His funeral is due Wednesday. Landau is survived by a wife, three children and eight grandchildren.
