      Robert King

      VICE Syria correspondent and veteran conflict photographer Robert King is on Reddit right now 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 gave 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 and contributed 20 pages of reportage to our Syria Issue.
