KATE WEBB, 64 Pioneering journalist

Kate Webb, a pioneering journalist whose powerful reputation was forged on the front lines of the Vietnam War and who roamed Asia for nearly 35 years covering coups and strife from India to the Philippines, died of cancer Sunday in Sydney, Australia, her brother Jeremy Webb said.

Ms. Webb first went to Vietnam in 1967 and spent more than six years covering the war for United Press International.

After the war's end, she worked throughout Asia for UPI and later Agence France-Presse.
