Feb 1, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Highly-acclaimed television journalist Christiane Amanpour who attained wide fame as one of the most sought after foreign correspondents of CNN before she joined ABC, was back on the network last night but this time just a guest on the ‘Piers Morgan Tonight.’ The British talk show host was joined by the noted journalist on his show on Monday night live from Cairo, where the ABC correspondent is covering the on-going political turmoil in the Arab nation over demands for the resignation of President Hosni Mubarak.
Many viewers tuned in to watch last night’s episode of Piers Morgan’s chat show, as the British presenter took to the micro-blogging site Twitter earlier on to reveal that Christiane Amanpour would be making a brief appearance on his show to discuss the political scenario in the trouble-torn country of Egypt. While talking to Piers Morgan, the much-acclaimed ABC journalist said that the people who are calling for President Hosni Mubarak’s resignation feel that the large number of anti-government protests that is currently taking place in the Arab nation, should not frighten the rest of the world. However, they are aware that the world is indeed afraid if the protests turn into an Islamic revolution which is something that even they do not want, the journalist highlighted.
Christiane Amanpour arrived with the ABC crew in the Egyptian capital of Cairo over the weekend to cover the ongoing protests in which as many 100 people are reported to have lost their lives while many more have been injured. The ABC journalist noted that when she arrived at the Cairo International Airport, she found large number of foreign tourists stranded while many locals were afraid to leave the airport amidst the turmoil.
