About Aboubacrine

Graduated in Public Law and French Language and Literature, I have started my career as Video Journalist collaborating with Reuters Television in North of Mali. Based in Kidal, the stronghold of the Tuareg rebellion, I actually cover news and feature stories for Reuters Television, which are largely distributed by TV channels worldwide. Native in Tamasheq (Tuareg language), I am also perfectly bilingual in French and English. In my role of Video Journalist, I shoot, edit and produce my stories and I can adapt to any format requested by broadcasters worldwide. Seized by Islamists in 2012, the region I cover is unaccessible to international journalists due to the ongoing armed conflict which led to the intervention of the French forces and the establishment of an UN Peacekeeping operation.
