Travels in Pakistan

channel 4

Talking to Channel 4 news about the Lahore attack in April.

Over March and April this year, I spent six weeks in Pakistan on assignment with the Times. While I was there I traveled to all the major provinces of the country (Sindh, Punjab, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, and Balochistan) and reported on major news stories including the terrible Easter Sunday bombing in Lahore and the political fall-out that followed, and China’s economic ambitions in Pakistan.

The longer project I was working on, as part of the Richard Beeston bursary that I was awarded last year, will be published in the Times soon. In the meantime, here are a few of the shorter news pieces I wrote during my trip. (All links behind a paywall).
