When Stuart Hughes wrote on this blog recently about about a reunion in Sarajevo of journalists who had covered the war in Bosnia 20 years ago, he thought it was just the media people who were picking up their old connections.

But he's now had an email from cameraman Robbie Wright, whose video he mentioned in his blog post.

Robbie says a woman in New York had got in touch, thanks to Stuart's blog, to tell him she was the girl he filmed being driven away, crying on a bus (below, in still frame from his video).

"Pretty cool," says Robbie, because he had often wondered what had happened to her.
