Covering Syria and Yemen

Many reporters and photographers have been to Syria since 2011, but after a period when the country was open, opportunities to reach the rebels became increasingly rare; in fact, it was impossible to go there without running the risk of being abducted. On the government side, there is still very little access. In Yemen, while the government authorities would welcome reporters, only a handful could reach areas controlled by Houthi rebels.

Some of those who did go will describe their first-hand experiences and explain how they managed to work in these zones: Régis Le Sommier (deputy director of Paris Match), Véronique de Viguerie (photographer), Noël Quidu (photographer) & Manon Quérouil-Bruneel (journalist), moderated by Adrien Jeaulmes.
