Sebastian Walker is a correspondent for Al Jazeera, who has been based in Haiti for the last year. He arrived on the ground less than 24 hours after the earthquake hit and stayed on to document the progress of the relief effort, making Al Jazeera English the only international tv network to maintain a permanent presence in Port-au-Prince that year. Sebastian recently returned from Libya, Bahrain, Qatar and Egypt, where he was making a film on U.S. interests in the region for the Al Jazeera show Fault Lines.
