British journalist David Frost,
best-known for interviewing former U.S president Richard Nixon,
died of a heart attack on Saturday at the age of 74, the BBC
reported on Sunday.
"Sir David died of a heart attack last night aboard the
Queen Elizabeth which is a Cunard (cruise) liner where he was
giving a speech. His family are devastated and ask for privacy
at this difficult time," the family said in a statement read on
BBC television. Frost, who was a permanent fixture on British TV for more than four decades, had in recent years been working for Al-Jazeera.
