Nick Fielding

Add to shortlist


Award winning investigative journalist Nick Fielding has wide experience of reporting terrorism and intelligence issues. For seven years he was a senior reporter on the The Sunday Times where he covered the aftermath and implications of the 9/11 attacks, reporting from Afghanistan, Pakistan and the Far East. He also wrote extensively on the animal rights movement in Britain.

In 2003 he co-authored Masterminds of Terror, which examined in detail the planning for the 9/11 attacks and which has become the standard reference work on how the operation was carried out. It has since been translated into seven languages.

While working as chief investigative reporter for the Mail on Sunday he broke the sensational story of David Shayler, the former MI5 officer who went public with criticisms of his former employers. This eventually resulted in the publication of his first book, Defending the Real: MI5 and the Shayler Affair.

Nick has just finished a film for al-Jazeera on the investigation into the death of former Osama bin Laden associate, Jamal Khalifa, which involved him traveling to Madagascar and the southern Philippines.
