Expulsion from #Derna bastion may show limits for #IslamicState in #Libya http://reut.rs/1MOnv5V #isis #isil #jihadi #islam #gaddafi

Religion Editor, Reuters
Introduction
My job as Religion Editor is to coordinate religion news coverage with our bureaus around the world. Based in Paris, I also run our FaithWorld blog and report mostly about Christianity and Islam in Europe and related moral issues such as bioethics. Since joining Reuters in 1977 in London, I've been a correspondent, bureau chief and editor in Vienna, Geneva, Islamabad, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Bonn and Paris. My book Unchained Eagle: Germany after the Wall was published in 2000. With religion becoming an increasingly important factor in the news, I launched the Religion Editor job in 2003.
