Bio: I am a 40-year veteran at AP, currently the bureau chief in The Netherlands where I have been based since 2000. Previously I was the South Asia bureau chief based in New Delhi, Scandinavia news editor in Stockholm and Jerusalem correspondent. In the Netherlands, I have covered the war crimes trials of Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic, Bosnian Serb leaders Radovan Karadzic and Ratko Mladic, the case of former Liberian President Charles Taylor, and many international disputes before the world court. Besides coverage of Dutch national affairs and international justice, I have specialized in recent years in environmental news and climate change.
