Award-winning Foreign Affairs Correspondent Lisa Holland covers major news stories from around the globe. Lisa was integral to Sky News’ coverage of the Arab Spring spending much of 2011 in Libya. She was one of the first journalists allowed into Tripoli, by the Gaddafi regime, at the start of the uprising and continued to cover events in Tripoli until the fall five months later. Her exclusive interview with Colonel Gaddafi’s son Saif al-Islam drew widespread praise.
In 2010, a time when Colonel Gaddafi was still very firmly in power, Lisa secured unprecedented access to Libya to make the documentary Libya: The Stolen Children which was subsequently short-listed for a Royal Television Society award.
Lisa has covered the wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and Lebanon and has reported from most of the countries in the Middle East. Lisa went into Baghdad with the US marines as Saddam Hussein fell and was one of the first western journalists to enter Eastern Afghanistan after the fall of the Taliban in 2001.
Working in Afghanistan was a remarkable experience for Lisa, but one which was blighted by the deaths of four fellow journalists who were shot dead when the convoy in which she and the Sky News team had been travelling in from Jalalabad to Kabul, was ambushed by the Taliban.
The end of the war in Iraq saw Lisa exclusively reveal an increase in birth deformities in the Iraqi city of Fallujah. Other major events that Lisa has reported on include the Mumbai siege, the Asian tsunami and the Bali bomb.Hide Profile
