I have come looking for some help...
This relates to the Amanda Lindhout story...the woman released yesterday from captivity in Somalia.
I have been following the story the last few days.
I have read/heard some troubling things.
- she was told not to go to Somalia, by who not sure (source:CBC Radio news)
- she was not trained to work in war zones or dangerous locations (source:CBC radio news)
- she may not have formal journalism credentials or schooling
Can anyone help me out here? Was she contracted to a new organization before going oversees? Where did she go to school for journalism? Who was her employer?(did they send her there?) Would she have been registered as a foreign corespondent with any Canadian or international organization? Has anyone read any of her reportage?
I have been trying to find this and have had no luck....
