PARIS (AP) - The top editor at France's leading daily newspaper has died suddenly of a heart attack.

Erik Izraelewicz, 58, had led Le Monde for about two years, after a career that included top jobs at some of France's leading business newspapers. In a statement, Le Monde journalists said Izraelewicz collapsed while working in his office Tuesday evening and was rushed to a Paris hospital, where he was declared dead.

The newspaper has not yet named a replacement.
