5 Eyewitness News Hosts Journalist From Pakistan

There are 14 journalists from Pakistan in the United States, here as part of a swap between the two countries arranged by the International Center for Journalists in Washington, D.C., and sponsored by the State Department.

Sohail Akhter is a reporter and producer with PTV in Pakistan, a national network much like ABC-News.

Akhter spent his days observing the working journalists in the 5 Eyewitness Newsroom, and his free time seeing the sights in the state, among them Lake Superior, a Twins game and the Mall of America.

Akhter says he enjoyed the experience, and that he learned a lot from the photographers and reporters at KSTP. He says he also learned a lot about America, and will take his insights and observations home with him.
