American Chess champion passes away

Former world chess champion Bobby Fischer has died.  Fischer was 64 and died Thursday at a hospital in Reykjavik, Iceland.

The reclusive American chess master became a Cold War icon in 1972 when he dethroned the Soviet Union's Boriss Passky to become the World Champion.
