Tune in TODAY at noon for a discussion between New America Foundation/American Strategy Program senior fellow Steve Clemons and Ayman Mohyeldin, the Cairo-based Middle East correspondent for Al-Jazeera English.
With over a decade of reporting experience, Mohyeldin has covered Egypt, Lebanon, the Gulf, and Israel-Palestine (where he was one of the only international journalists based in Gaza during the 2008-2009 Israeli war). Now based in Cairo, his coverage direct from Tahrir Square provided a frontline view of the tumultuous events in Cairo that ultimately led to the overthrow of President Hosni Mubarak. Ayman will also speak to the ongoing reality of revolution and revolt in the region, as well as the considerable risks international and local journalists have faced including arrest, abduction, and even murder.
