Since then, he has been constantly bouncing across the Middle East, Africa and the former Soviet Union, covering a variety of events and issues, including the youth in the Arab world, war in Syria, ivory poaching in Africa, the Ukrainian uprising, and most recently, the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.
