NEW YORK - Qatar-based news channel Al Jazeera's English service will be awarded the highest honor of New York's Columbia School of Journalism for its coverage of unrest in the Middle East, the university said on Wednesday.

"Al Jazeera English has performed a great service in bringing the English-speaking world in-depth coverage of the turmoil in the Middle East," said Columbia School of Journalism Dean Nicholas Lemann.

The Columbia Journalism Award honors "singular journalism in the public interest." The Columbia School of Journalism is also home to the The Pulitzer Prize Board, which annually honors journalism, books, drama and poetry.
