A journalist from Haiti and one from Mexico are among the 2011 Dart Center Ochberg Fellows, according to Poynter.org.

Kathie Klarreich, an independent Journalist from Port-au-Prince and a Knight International Journalism Fellow; Marcela Turati, from the magazine Revista Proceso in Mexico City, and eight other journalists from the United States, Bangladesh and Ukraine will receive a week of in-depth training in order to improve their coverage of violence, conflict and tragedy.
