Mark Stone joined Sky News in 2005 and has covered a wide variety of stories from the conflicts in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya to the summer riots of 2011 for which he was described, in The Daily Telegraph, as “the bravest man in London”.

In July 2006, Mark was among the first British journalists to be embedded with the army in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. He was the first journalist with an eyewitness report from inside the terminal of Glasgow Airport following the terrorist attack in June 2007. He met Alexander Litvinenko in London, two weeks before the former KGB spy was poisoned.

In 2011 Mark reported extensively from Libya on the uprising, the subsequent Nato intervention and the death of Muammar Gaddafi. He played a central role in Sky’s coverage of the London riots in August 2011. Using just an iPhone, he captured some of the most striking footage of the unrest. His confrontations with the looters engaged viewers and the impact of his work was immediate. His footage led bulletins on Sky and it was used by rival TV networks across the globe. Online, Mark's page became one of the most popular destinations on Twitter. Within 24 hours his videos had been viewed by nearly a million people.

Mark is one of just a handful of journalists to sit through almost every session of Britain's Iraq Inquiry giving him an extensive knowledge of the war in Iraq and the decisions behind it.

Before joining Sky, Mark spent three years at ABC News (America). He was based in Iraq for a year between 2003 and 2004. He reported on the capture of Saddam Hussein, the insurgency that followed and was part of a small team who were awarded an Emmy for their coverage of the war.

Mark was appointed as Sky’s Asia Correspondent in late 2012. He and his wife Millie live in Beijing, China.
