Reporters[edit]

Foreign correspondents[edit]

The list below reflects correspondents' normal postings. During major international events, such as the Libyan crisis of 2011 and the Gaza conflict of 2014, foreign correspondents may be redeployed from their normal bases to cover such stories temporarily on a rota (when they are usually branded "World Affairs Correspondents" or when in Europe "Europe Correspondents"), before returning to their normal base. This can also happen to cover holidays mainly during July / August and over Christmas periods.
