Peter Greste


Peter Greste left his native Australia in 1991, to pursue his dream of becoming a foreign correspondent. Since then, he has covered Afghanistan and Central Asia, the Balkans, Iraq, Latin America and now Africa where he has lived for the past nine years. In 2011, he won a prestigious Peabody Award for a documentary on Somalia - a place that has become a major focus of his work since moving to East Africa. The region he covers includes the Horn of Africa (Somalia, Eritrea, Djibouti, Ethiopia and South Sudan); Kenya and Tanzania; and the Great Lakes states (Uganda, Bururndi, Rwanda and the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo).
