Humam Husari on awards shortlist for reports from eastern Ghouta during conflict
British officials have backed down after being criticised for refusing to grant a visa to a Syrian video journalist to attend an awards ceremony in London next week.
Humam Husari, who reported on the Syrian civil war for ITV for five years, will now be allowed into the UK after the Home Office dropped its objection on Friday.
Good News: My visit to the UK has just been approved! My deep thanks to everyone how spent an effort to make this happen.
