Correspondent in South Africa for Paris Based French Language Breaking News Service: Les News

Correspondent in South Africa
Les News (A French language international news service based in Paris)
December 2013 – Present (5 months) Paris Area, France

Les News was founded 17 July 2009. With 280 k followers on Twitter including from the French political class, Les News has a reputation for breaking news fast. It first came to fame reporting on the Columbine massacre when others had yet to report on it globally. 

What I report on is global, and very few of the many stories published with me in the via line are on South Africa, with most being about Europe or America. Much of the news I provide for Les News gets at least dozens of Retweets, with some getting in excess of 100. I am one of about 30 journalists of Les News globally.
