Israel: Al Jazeera journalist held
Wednesday 17 August 2011
Israel has arrested a Palestinian journalist who works for the Arabic language Al Jazeera satellite network.
Al Jazeera said in a statement that Samer Allawi, its bureau chief in Afghanistan, was taken into custody on 10 August as he tried to leave the West Bank to return to the Afghan capital, Kabul.
The Committee to Protect Journalists in New York said in a statement that Mr Allawi has been detained without charges and called on Israel to clarify the legal basis for holding him.
The Israeli military, the Shin Bet internal security service and police have so far declined to comment.
