My name is Stuart Ramsay. I’m Sky News’ Chief Correspondent and the channel’s longest serving foreign reporter, and just returned from a week meeting some of Mexico's most notorious criminals. AMA!
Last year I spent a lot of time covering the unfolding events in Syria for Sky News. I covered the devastating impact on civilians in Homs, the battle for Aleppo and got exclusive footage and interviews with UK jihadists. It was there I met a lawless rebel group – soon to become the most feared in the Middle East – IS. In 2010 I was the first foreign journalist to enter the Swat Valley after the Taliban took control and obtained footage of Taliban training camps for suicide bombers for which we received an International Emmy. More recently I witnessed the uprisings in Ukraine and reported on the scene from the MH17 crash site. I had a count up and I have covered 18 wars from Chechnya through Africa, and the Middle East to Afghanistan and Iraq. I’ve done a fair few earthquakes too.
I’ve just come back from spending a week traveling through Mexico and meeting some of the country's most notorious and dangerous criminals, including a man who claims to have killed over 500 people.
