Beirut Bureau Chief, The Washington Post

Liz Sly

Described as, “the dean of Middle Eastern correspondents,” Liz’s 37 years in journalism have rendered her fearless, despite constant government surveillance. Most recently she has covered the war in Syria and has reported in-country more than a dozen times at great risk – nearly 130 journalists have been killed to-date. Liz’s coverage has yielded countless awards and simply put: she is intrepid.
