SAN FRANCISCO: Civil rights activist Yuri Kochiyama, whose photograph famously appeared in Life magazine showing her cradling the head of Malcom X moments after he was shot, has died of natural causes in her Berkeley home. She was 93.

Kochiyama’s family said she died in her sleep on Sunday.

Among her many accomplishments during 50 years of work, Kochiyama’s activism led directly to the US Senate’s agreement to pay reparations and apologize to Japanese-Americans and others who were interred during the World War II.
