Andrew Sussman Produces Coverage of Egyptian Conflict

By IRP Staff, September 22, 2011

PRI's "The World" recently reported on the protests in Egypt. Andrew Sussman, the executive producer of PRI's "The World," was a 2006 Gatekeeper Editor to Egypt. Many of the contacts he made and the issues the Gatekeeper Editors examined assisted him in reporting on the current uprising in Egypt. The United States has urged the Egyptian authorities to implement political and economic reforms while calling for calm as protesters burned government buildings in Egypt. The government there has blamed the Islamist Muslim Brotherhood for the violence. But novelist and activist Alaa Al Aswany, speaking from Cairo with host Marco Werman, says the Egyptian demonstrations reflect popular anger at the Mubarak regime.
