quote: US troops in Baghdad on Monday arrested three journalists who worked for the Arabic television channel Al-Aalam, broadcast by the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting (IRIB). In a fax sent to IRNA, Al-Aalam identified the three as Sami Hassan, Zoheir Mostafa and Ghuran Tofiq, who were reporters and cameramen. They were detained in front of the central police building in Baghdad, where they wanted to report about police work since the ouster of Saddam Hussein.
