      Our Syria Correspondent Is Doing an AMA Tomorrow

      November 29, 2012

      By VICE Staff


      Robert King

      VICE Syria correspondent and veteran conflict photographer Robert King will be on Reddit tomorrow at 10:30 AM to answer your questions about what he's witnessed in his coverage of Bosnia, Chechnya, Afghanistan, Gaza, Mexico, Iraq, and now the year-long bloody civil war in Syria.

      Robert has been embedded with the Free Syrian Army so long that they've given him the nickname 'Haji Memphis,' after his hometown. He has documented the devastation of the Al-Quasyr Hospital, the massacre at Taftanaz, the burning of the ancient souk in Aleppo's Old City, and the courageous doctors at the Dar al-Shifa field hospital in Aleppo, which was rocketed into rubble just days ago.

      Robert, or the Bulletproof Ghost as we call him, was also the subject of the 2008 feature-length documentary, Shooting Robert King.

      You can join VICE and Robert on Reddit tomorrow at 10:30 AM EST with your questions. Check VICE's Twitter feed or this post tomorrow for the link.
