Rawya Rageh

"Rawya Rageh has covered the Middle East extensively for the Associated Press news agency and Al Jazeera English since it launched in November 2006. S... he was the first AJE reporter to cover the unfolding protests in Egypt on January 25, 2011, which led to the ouster of President Hosni Mubarak. Rageh has continued to cover Egypt's tumultuous transitional period that followed, including Mubarak's historic trial and landmark parliamentary and presidential elections. Her coverage of Egypt's Revolution was listed by Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism as one of ""50 Great Stories"" by its alumni in the past 100 years. She was named by Forbes Middle East Magazine in 2011 as one of the 100 Arab characters with the most presence on Twitter. Her past experiences include covering Iraq from 2004-2006 and returning as AJE's Iraq reporter in 2010. Rageh also has experience in Sudan's Darfur and the Gulf. She was the first AP newswoman to cover the annual Hajj pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia."
