CBC's Margaret Evans on conflict zones, vulnerable interviewees
Welcome to the second installation of Ask CBC News.
Margaret Evans, the CBC's London-based Europe correspondent, has fielded two questions from the CBC Community.
We would like to thank Andy Fisher from Chatham Ont., for his question about how journalists keep safe when reporting in conflict zones
We would also like to thank Rob Oliver from Hastings, Ont., for his question about how correspondents feel when they interview vulnerable people in crisis situations.
