ABC News Reopens Bureau in Beirut

ABC News has reopened a bureau in Beirut, Lebanon. Alexander Marquardt, who covers the region for the network, will be based there. The Beirut bureau is in addition to ABC's long-standing base in Jerusalem.

ABC's first Beirut bureau was opened 45 years ago by a young Peter Jennings. "Beirut was a city Peter Jennings made his own. So it's fitting - and timely - that ABC News is returning to a place that is one of the best listening posts in The Middle East," said Jon Williams, managing editor of international news.

With the Obama administration weighing a response to Syria's use of chemical weapons, ABC News Chief Foreign Correspondent Terry Moran will report from Beirut for all broadcasts and platforms beginning Wednesday, August 28. This marks Moran's first assignment since moving overseas.

ABC News Chief Global Affairs Correspondent Martha Raddatz, who anchored "This Week" from Cairo last Sunday, continues to report from the region along with Muhammad Lila. Matt Gutman will be reporting from the northern Israeli city of Haifa.

Jon Williams is the managing editor of International News for ABC News.
