CGTN’s Cairo correspondent, Adel EL Mahrouky began his career in Egypt’s peak moments of unrest.
As the country was moving from 30 years of Mubarak’s leadership to true democracy, Adel was the closest to the events.
He has reported standing in the middle of clashes to give our audience the most truthful images available.
With his passion for news coverage, Adel was the first on scene at various events including the Police Academy where Mubarak´s trial was held. CGTN’s coverage in Cairo for the past 14 months was so unique – we shared our coverage with the entire world, events in Egypt that no other channel or wire-services provided.
He could work for days with almost no sleep to give CGTN’s audience latest and most recent updates. Severing our Beijing, Nairobi and DC offices, Adel’s regular day could stretch from 8:00 am – 3:00 am the next day.
