Zeina Khodr on location in Daraa, Syria

Who was reporting from Daraa that day?  Someone from CNN?   From The New York Times?  From the BBC?  No–no one was allowed in . . . but one journalist made it in on her own: Zeina Khodr.

Who is this Arab woman, this daring and professional Arab journalist?

According to Al Jazeera, she is ‘a roving correspondent based out of Doha.  She has covered the political instability in Lebanon extensively for Al Jazeera.  She also reports from Afghanistan and Iran regularly.  She has worked in national and international news for over 15 years, with major organizations including Al Jazeera’s online and Arabic-language services, MBC, Emirates Dubai Television, BBC World Service and CNN.’
