Since September 11, Peter Finn has kept us informed of the stories behind the attacks, such as the European connections of the hijackers and the origins of the plot to commit the atrocities. He has also reported extensively on the fighting and political situation in Afghanistan.

As Berlin bureau chief for The Washington Post, Finn, who was brought up in Roscommon before he moved to Dublin, is used to roaming the trouble spots of Central and Eastern Europe in his search for a story.

Finn is a highly respected, award-winning journalist, who won the grand prize in the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Awards. ♦
