Ten Journalists in Ten Days: Ayman Mohyeldin
The ninth journalist in my Ten Journalists in Ten Days series is newly named Foreign Correspondent for NBC News in Egypt, Ayman Mohyeldin. Mohyeldin formerly worked as Gaza Correspondent for Al-Jazeera English where he extensively covered the fall of Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak and his regime. Soon afterwards, Time Magazine named Mohyeldin as one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World. In this clip from Al Jazeera English, Mohyeldin talks about how he was detained for several hours by the military in Tahrir Square during his coverage of the revolution. On August 22, 2011 NBC News President Steve Capus announced Mohyeldin’s return to the network where he originally began his career in 2001.
