The Observers

Meet our Observer from China

Each month, our journalists go meet an Observer to take a closer look at events they have witnessed.


To celebrate the 10th anniversary of The Observers - France 24, we're introducing you to some of the Observers we've worked with over the years. Our editor Derek Thomson meets Lu Haitao, one of our Observers from China.
