'Operation Hope' and Sara Sidner win TV award

Senior International Correspondent Sara Sidner has won a prestigious television award for her CNN Freedom Project documentary, "Operation Hope".

The documentary, aired earlier this year, was a powerful update to Sidner's original reporting in 2011 about a seven-year-old Bangladeshi boy who was viciously attacked, castrated and left for dead because he refused to be forced into begging.

"Operation Hope" was voted Best Social Awareness Program at the Asian Television Awards in Singapore.
