He has also completed assignments for the British broadcasters BBC and Channel 4, as well as the American news channel CNN and the English-language version of the Arabian new channel Aljazeera.
Ahmed Bahaddou arrived with two other Associated Press journalists in Syria on 2 June. Last Friday he was shot in the shoulders, by an as yet unidentified assailant.
He has since been flown to a London hospital, where his condition is described as stable and not life-threatening.
Mr Bahaddou also covered the 2011 Libyan conflict and was awarded last year’s prestigious Rory Peck Award for News.
He has 18 years’ experience and has worked as a free-lancer for many of the world’s most respected broadcasters.
