Death of Pearl reporter.

HUGH Lytle, whose teletype message provided the world with the first account of the attack on Pearl Harbour, has died. He was 100.

Lytle, the Honolulu correspondent for the Associated Press and a reserve army officer, was awakened by the army on December 7, 1941 as Japanese planes bombed the US fleet.

He quickly left for his AP office where he filed a brief account of the attack in progress, then reported for military duty with the army.

He died in California and is survived by his son and grandson.
