The Frontline Club has named the Times’ Afghanistan correspondent Jerome Starkey winner of its annual excellence in journalism award.
Starkey, who is based in Afghanistan, has reported extensively on civilian casualties during the Afghanistan War. His coverage of a raid in February this year in which five civilians were killed prompted a US military commander to visit the victims’ families. The awards will be presented at the Frontline Club on Thursday 25 November.
