Philip-BlenkinsopPhilip Blenkinsop UK/Australia, 1965. Since arriving in Asia in 1989, Philip’s name has become synonymous with forgotten conflicts. From weeks spent traversing the mountains of East Timor with Falintil guerrillas, to tribal war and cannibalism in Borneo, to the tragic plight of Hmong Veterans and their families lost deep in the heart of Laos’ forbidden zone. Philip’s most recent reports concern the Yellow River and the earthquake in China.

During the Vietnam War, Hmong guerrillas fought for the CIA in their secret campaign in Laos. When the US withdrew in 1975, it abandoned the majority of these guerillas in the jungle, where they have lived in hiding until today.
