Arnett to Afghanistan

Former CNN correspondent Peter Arnett has been hired by Broadcast News Networks, a New York-based independent news production company, to be a correspondent covering the war on terrorism.

Arnett will contribute live and taped reports from the Afghanistan region to BNN's client stations across the United States and the world.

He will be chief correspondent of the company's CameraPlanet correspondents unit, a group of more than 40 reporters.

Arnett, who won a Pulitzer Prize reporting in Vietnam for the Associated Press, left CNN after 18 years in the wake of the "Tailwind" scandal. He was the correspondent for the June 1998 report that the U.S. military used nerve gas in Laos, which was later retracted.
