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.
