NPR has hired Leila Fadel from the Washington Post as a foreign correspondent based in Cairo. At the Post, Fadel served as bureau chief in Iraq and Egypt, covering the Iraq War and the Arab Spring. She will start at NPR in July; the Post is now looking for her successor, according to a memo on Romenesko.

NPR also hired Gregory Warner, a correspondent for American Public Media’s Marketplace, as East Africa correspondent, based in Nairobi, Kenya. And it appointed Corey Flintoff, a former newscaster and a correspondent for NPR’s digital news division, as its Moscow correspondent.
