Hannah Roberts is an investigative reporter, feature-writer and columnist reporting from the Mediterranean including Italy, Greece, and the Balkans.
She moved to Rome in 2013 and since then covered many of the major events that have recently buffeted the European continent, including the Paris terror attacks and the Greek Eurozone breakdown. She has reported extensively on the refugee crisis following a Syrian refugee from southern Italy to Calais in January 2015. The coverage of this issue took her from interviewing prosecutors in Sicily to Gaddafi family members in Cairo, and from the beach in Turkey where Alan Kurdi drowned to the vast encampments on Greek islands Lesbos and Kos finding evidence of attacks by commandos linked to the Greek Coastguard. She revealed the Communist Party upbringing of Donald Trump's wife in Slovenia. She speaks fluent Spanish and Italian and conversational French and has lived and worked as a journalist around the globe including in South Africa, India, London and New York.
