Corbin has reported extensively from Afghanistan and Pakistan making programmes about the Taliban, women's rights, and the war against militants on both sides of the border. She covered the hunt for Bin Laden in Afghanistan and Pakistan and made a one-hour documentary for BBC1 (Hostage) on Al-Qaeda's tactic of hostage-taking in Iraq. She investigated the network of the 'father of the Islamic bomb', Dr A.Q. Khan, and later reported from the tribal area of Waziristan on the impact of America's secret drone war in Pakistan. In The Death of Bin Laden (2011) she revealed how the CIA finally tracked down and killed the fugitive leader of the terror group.
