CBS’ Scott Pelley speaks with New York Times photojournalist Tyler Hicks about the situation in — and his photos from — Somalia.

Hicks is the journalist who took the remarkable photo that ran on Tuesday’s New York Times front page.

Bill Keller, Executive Editor of the New York Times, on the decision to run the front page photo of a starving child in Somalia in Tuesday’s print edition:

We realize, of course, that the story du jour is the debt vote — to which we devoted the lead story and upwards of four pages this morning — but there’s no reason that has to eclipse a human catastrophe in Africa. Readers can follow more than one important story at a time.
Jeffrey and Tyler went to great trouble and some risk to get as close as they could to the calamity in Somalia. They sent us a harrowing story and vivid, arresting photographs. We put them before the attention of our readers. That’s our job.
