International Correspondent, The Independent
Live reporting from Ukraine’s frontline
Bel Trew is International Correspondent at The Independent.
Based in Beirut, Bel has been covering conflicts across the Middle East for a decade and has recently returned from an extended secondment in Ukraine. A series of her reportage ‘On The Ground’ uncovers the horrors that Russia has inflicted on Ukrainians – including clear evidence of torture and enforced disappearance. Bel relates the stark reality of war reporting, sharing harrowing details of what she saw shooting them and how she made it to stay safe. Drawing on her own experience, she brings up the subject of journalists risking their lives and suffering from PTSD – a common but ignored result of reporting from war zones.
