Brussels blog by some wire service journalists

Who we are . . .

 Don Melvin, a native New Englander is news editor for the Brussels bureau of a wire service, having previously spent three years as an editor in London. An avid music collector and sometime runner, he occasionally keeps his eye on the news.




Raf Casert, a native Belgian, covers the European Union, Belgian politics and culture — and a host of sports, which keeps him conveniently out of the office. Tennis and track, more interesting than the EU? Some might think so.







Slobodan Lekic, from Montenegro, has been consumed with covering NATO during the conflict in Libya. He recently spent time on the French aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle in the Mediterranean. A pilot, he also lends his experience and authority to our aviation coverage.
