When suicide explosions strike Lahore; Pakistan indicts Americans on terrorism charges; or—oops—Taliban arrests derail secret U.N. talks, one woman keeps U.S. audiences informed with in-depth reporting. Julie McCarthy has covered news around the world for NPR, and last year opened the network’s first permanent bureau in Islamabad, Pakistan.
