Nawal Al-Maghafi, BBC Arabic Correspondent
A BBC Arabic and BBC Our World Production #StarvingYemen #FuneralBombing
Nawal Almaghafi is a BBC Reporter/ Film Director who specialises in the Middle East with a main focus on Yemen. She has reported extensively from Yemen during the past 6 years and her most recent production, “The Funeral Bombing”, investigates an attack on a funeral in that war torn country. Nawal travels from areas held under rebel control to areas under government control to identify who was responsible for this deadly attack – the deadliest in Yemen’s 21-month conflict. Her earlier film “Starving Yemen”, produced for the BBC, was the first piece to document the country’s unfolding humanitarian catastrophe.
