Wilhelm interns covering major news events

This quarter we have students on the John R. Wilhelm Foreign Correspondence Internship program covering events in Ecuador and the Middle East.

Gail Burkhardt, a double-major in journalism and Spanish, recently wrote the story “Police Riots in Ecuadore,” filed on the IIJ’s blog.

This week, Ecuador shook, and it was not from an eruption from one of its many volcanoes. Thursday morning, National Police across the country began protesting a new law that they said would cut their benefits. [from Burkhardt’s blog entry]

Several thousand miles away, Wilhelm intern Aisha Mohammed filed a report from the Jerusalem bureau of Associated Press, “Archaeologists find theater box at Herod’s palace.”

Israeli archaeologists have excavated a lavish, private theater box in a 400-seat facility at King Herod’s winter palace in the Judean desert, the team’s head said Tuesday. [from Mohammed’s AP report]

The Institute for International Journalism has been sending students abroad on such internships since the early 1970s.
