I'm Nick Schifrin, foreign correspondent for Al Jazeera America, currently in Ukraine. AMA!
I’m Nick Schifrin, Al Jazeera America’s first foreign correspondent, based in Jerusalem. I’m currently covering the crisis in the Ukraine from Crimea.
Since joining Al Jazeera America, I’ve covered the uprising in Ukraine, the death of former South African president Nelson Mandela, the war in Syria from the Syrian border and from peace talks in Geneva, as well as the ongoing Middle East conflict.
Previously, I was a correspondent with ABC News, where I was the Afghanistan/Pakistan correspondent and running the bureaus in Kabul and Islamabad. I was the first American journalists to arrive in Abbottabad after Osama bin Laden’s death and delivered one of the biggest exclusives of 2011: video from inside bin Laden’s compound, including the bedroom where the Al Qaeda leader was killed.
I’ll be answering questions starting at 12pm ET. Ask away!
Here’s my latest segment from Crimea.
