Clarissa Ward

Clarissa Ward (CNN) Clarissa Ward is a senior international correspondent based in CNN’s London bureau. For more than a decade Ward has reported from front lines across the world from Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Yemen to Georgia – during the Russian incursion in 2008 – and Ukraine. This past February Ward travelled undercover to rebel-held areas in Syria — where almost no Western journalists have visited in over a year — to report on what life is like there under the bombs. Less than 24 hours after arriving, Ward along with CNN producer Salma Abdelaziz and Syria-based filmmaker Bilal Abdul Kareem witnessed an airstrike that left 11 dead.Clarissa Ward resized
