Jordanian journalist wins Emmy award for CBS Syria documentary
Jordan’s own Amjad Tadros has scooped an Emmy for his work as a producer on CBS’ documentary on Syria “A Crime Against Humanity,” adding to his successful career of 26 years covering the region.
Tadros, who has worked for CBS as a Middle East field producer since 1990, was awarded the Emmy along with his 60 Minutes team for investigating the horrific story of the 2013 sarin gas attack in Syria’s Ghoutha that US intelligence estimates killed more than 1,400 civilians.
“It was a great untold story, especially for a western audience. People in the Middle East have an idea about what is happening in Syria, but for the level of not understanding the violence in Syria is not that common,” Tadros told Al Arabiya English.
