A Swedish man on the BBC Arabic

There's a Swedish man called Staffan de Mistura who is a diplomat and tries to help make peace. Well, he has Italian ancestry, too, but that's okay.

He was on the BBC Arabic a few weeks ago:

He was condemning really dangerous bombs that everyone in Syrian is dropping on everyone else. The Syrian government, if I remember correctly, was complaining because they claim they aren't the worst actors and why should they be singled out; but the Swedish diplomat was condemning everyone.

The lady at the BBC Arabic who was anchoring the news that evening is right here:

Do you see the glow on her face because she is speaking about a Swedish person? Well, she is the first hijabi anchor on the BBC Arabic. At first, I only saw on her special occasions, like the summer Olympics, or during holidays (last Christmas). Now they've put her on in the middle of the night, too.
