PARIS (AFP) - 

American war photographer Stanley Greene, who won five World Press Photo awards, died in Paris on Friday aged 68, the Noor Images agency he co-founded said.

Greene passed away in a hospital in the French capital after a long illness, Noor Images's managing director Clement Saccomani said.

New York-born Greene was a member of the Black Panthers in his youth and an anti-Vietnam War activist before producing "Western Front", a portrayal of San Francisco's punk scene in the 1970s and 1980s.

Greene later turned to photojournalism and moved to Paris in 1986. By chance he was on hand to record the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.

He went on to photograph wars in Chechnya, Iraq, Darfur, Afghanistan, Kashmir and Lebanon among others.
