Rym Brahimi is a correspondent for CNN and is based between the network's European headquarters in London and its Baghdad bureau.
In 2003, Brahimi reported live from Baghdad until officials expelled the CNN group after the war began. After leaving Baghdad, Brahimi reported from Jordan before returning to Baghdad after coalition forces had secured the city. In 2002, Brahimi spent time in Iraq reporting on the buildup of tension between Saddam Hussein's government and the West. She covered the Iraqi reaction to U.S. President George W. Bush's "Axis of Evil" speech and reported on the "Days of Days" celebrations commemorating the 10th anniversary of the end of the Iran/Iraq War.
In September 2001, Brahimi was the only correspondent to report out of Saudi Arabia for international television on Saudi sentiments following the terrorism attacks in the United States and the subsequent local reaction to the allied bombings in Afghanistan. Over the course of her career with CNN, Brahimi has worked on significant news events such as the NATO briefings during the Kosovo war in 1999, the Hajj in March 2000, the Gulf Air crash in Bahrain in September 2000 and the bombing of the USS Cole in Yemen in October 2000.
