Paul Conroy is a photojournalist and documentary maker, who began his career in the military. He has worked in warzones all over the world, taking photographs and making films for the BBC, Sky TV and the Sunday Times, amongst others.

Conroy was one of the first journalists to enter Libya when the uprising there began in 2011, and his talents meant he was soon teamed with the Sunday Times’ Marie Colvin, hailed as the greatest war reporter of his generation. The pair smuggled themselves into the besieged city of Misrata at a time when most of the foreign press corps had decided it was too dangerous to stay. They ended up covering the brutal shelling of the city for two months, longer than any other journalist team. He spent the next six months working in Libya with Colvin, before working together again in Syria in early 2012 to report on the atrocities being committed. It was to be the pair’s last assignment together. Colvin was killed in a rocket attack in Homs, Syria in February 2012.

Paul’s memoir, Under the Wire, was published by Quercus in June 2013.

Under the Wire: Marie Colvin’s Final Assignment @@reflextv

@im_PULSE @NYRDaily @reflextv While the article is informative, the horror it describes is just soul chilling. Assad is a living monster and it doesn’t make sense to me why once we committed we didn’t remove this animal? Where is the World Court? Sometimes I find myself wondering ...where’s OUR John Wayne ?

@reflextv @im_PULSE Evidence.. No western journalist were in allepo when this happened. Or even Syria in general.. What evidence that this was carried out by asad... NONE

This is amazing.... still more ISIS men surrendering in Baghuz. No doubt they will all say they were cooks, ice-cream sellers (yes, one woman in a camp told me that’s what her husband did in the Caliphate) and ran orphanages. https://t.co/l7lNddtRIl

@reflextv What an amazig courageous woman! We are also thankful for your strength to be there with her and tell us the truth!!! Thank you!

@reflextv @kataz_amazon @CNN Omar Alshogre is a very fine young man, who even mentions the good he experienced as a child in #Assad hellholes as well as the bad. What killed me in this, was that he should in any way be upset, by hearing #Syrians pain minimised to serve US domestic politics.

@reflextv @NeelyFanForever Echoing thoughts above - by the sound of it she must have been an amazing person to know.
Upmost respect for both of you. <3

It was such an honour attending the @ReporterOG’s screening of #UndertheWire film and talking to Paul Conroy (@reflextv) and @MattHeineman! Served as a stark reminder why we mustn’t let Syrian regime get away with worst crimes against humanity! #RememberingMarieColvin

@ProudSaboteur @MChiley @DeBalieCinema @reflextv @DeBalie @Cineville @SplendidFilmBNL And she's loved to this day.

@MChiley @reflextv She's a hero to Syrians, along with Remi Ochlik.
We love Mr. Conroy for his work and sacrifice, too.
If you don't like it, that's your problem.

Anyone doubting @reflextv who was on the ground and saw all the atrocities Assad’s forces committed should not be spoken to. These people are insane and after 8 years he doesn’t need to explain himself to morons who are steeped in conspiracies. Deny them the oxygen they crave.

@MChiley @ProudSaboteur @DeBalieCinema @reflextv @DeBalie @Cineville @SplendidFilmBNL I know what your comment was about. White "saviours", white "messiahs". Doesn't change my point that some ppl see beyond colour and race and just see ppl. Fame and fortune could have been come by a lot easier than Colvin's supposed route. I do not agree with your critique.

@Ian_Fraser You are a despicable human being https://t.co/abD3UbAznI

@leonmichaelking & @reflextv

@reflextv Just so many trolls and ignoramuses in this world . Marie was incredible , a legend and will be forever remembered not like this arsehole

Just watched #underthewire and listening to Q&A with @reflextv. Director of @aprivatewar is here in #Berlin, too. Fascinating stuff.

@MChiley @IsraHazel @reflextv Nothing to do with your gender or abuse - you made a grossly insensitive comment and directed it at him. If you're going to make condescending comments about a murdered person, at least have the common decency not to hurl them over the net at their most closest friends.
Shameless

@booksgo @E_Pennington_ @reflextv @im_PULSE Go read some books, shoo now

So great to interview the brilliant Paul Conroy (@reflextv) and @MattHeineman tonight in Berlin following @ReporterOG’s screening of #UndertheWire - well worth a watch, along with Matt’s biopic, A Private War.

Regime forces have targeted the neighborhoods of #KhanShaykhun City southern of #Idlib with 10 artillery shells. #WhiteHelmets teams are working to inspect the target areas and provide assistance.

“Unlike normal human beings I work 20 hour days so sometimes there’s no other way of doing it” @Nigel_Farage to @JaneDodgeC4 on his use of private jets “@Arron_banks has paid for those jets hasn’t he ? “I don’t know has he ?” Leave campaigners march on https://t.co/3llMDwqHBQ
