3 News’ Rachel Smalley will head to Afghanistan for around ten days to report on the state of the worn-torn country.
Smalley, who is the host of TV3’s new morning show 3News Firstline, will retutn to the country where she had previously worked as a freelancer in 2008.
I’m still working through the logistics of it all and it feels like it’s been months in the planning, but we’ll probably be on the ground for around 10 days or so,” Smalley said. “A lot has changed since I was there. George Bush has gone, bin Laden’s dead and so I think the war’s focus is about to change. I think pretty soon America will start talking about a phased withdrawal.”
Smalley will be replaced by Sam Hayes on Firstline while she is away.
