Cowing on the Mend After Hospital Dash

A series of articles from within war-torn Afghanistan – for The Scotsman, by its features writer, Emma Cowing – has suddenly had to come to an end…because of illness. understands Cowing has been flown to hospital in the UK after falling seriously ill in the heat of circa 50 degrees.

She is believed to be on the mend.

Says Scotsman editor, Mike Gilson: “I’m delighted Emma is recovering well. She and photographer, Ian Rutherford, sent some first class reports from Afghanistan which brought
home to our readers just how tough it is out there for our troops.”
