US military frees Reuters cameraman in Iraq


news.yahoo.com

The U.S. military freed a Reuters television cameraman on Thursday after holding him for three weeks in Iraq without charges.

Ali al-Mashhadani, who also works freelance for the BBC and Washington-based National Public Radio, was detained in Baghdad on July 30 while he was in the Green Zone government compound for routine checks for a U.S. military press card.

U.S. forces have detained Mashhadani twice before, at one point holding him for five months, but no charge has ever been filed against the cameraman, who is based in Ramadi, the capital of western Anbar province.

This demands some sort of official explanation. Okay, maybe the first time this journalist was arrested it was a mistake. Maybe, possibly even the second time. But the third time is not the charm in this case.

No charges, no crime, yet he's locked away for five months?

I dunno about you guys but if I was detained twice before I sure as hell wouldn't go back there and risk it again.
