CAR

Human RIghts Watch

Hundreds of Muslims are trapped in several enclaves in the west of the Central African Republic in deteriorating conditions. Most are too afraid to try to leave, but some face death if they stay. I travelled there in December 2014 to document their situation for Human Rights Watch, and also filed for the Guardian.

KENYA

Channel 4/QUiCKSILVEr

'Manhunt: Closing in on a British Paedophile' tells the inside story of the man described by police as one of Britain's most prolific paedophiles, convicted in December 2014 for sex offences committed in Kenya. I contributed to this Channel 4 Dispatches on the case.

RwandA

National GEOGRAPHIC

Twenty years after the devastating genocide in Rwanda, the teaching of national history remains a highly sensitive and often contentious issue in the country. I wrote about how Rwanda is working to teach its difficult history, in this piece for National Geographic.

HIGHLIGHTS

I tell stories about security, development, culture and human rights, using a range of media, including text, video, audio and photography. I report on violent extremism in Africa, in particular in Kenya and Somalia. I covered the brutal attack on Nairobi's Westgate shopping mall in September 2013: in the aftermath, I interviewed survivors and first responders, including retelling one of the most dramatic stories of the massacre

I followed the trail of the world's 'most wanted woman', Samantha Lewthwaite, and covered the deepening tensions in Kenya's "war on terror". I exposed the earlier arrest of Woolwich killer Michael Adebolajo on suspicions of trying to join Somali militant group al-Shabaab.
