    Another Reuters cameraman held without charge

    Reuters reports that a second journalist has been held captive by the US in Iraq, the organisation has demanded that he either be given a chance to defend himself, or released:

    Freelance television cameraman Samir Mohammed Noor, who was arrested by Iraqi troops at his home in the northern town of Tal Afar four months ago, was found to be "an imperative threat to the coalition forces and the security of Iraq" at a secret hearing last week, a U.S. military spokesman said. He is at the Camp Bucca internment camp in southern Iraq and his case would be reviewed within six months, Lieutenant Colonel Guy Rudisill said. U.S. officials have repeatedly refused to disclose what accusations have been made against him.
    No doubt there'll be several weeks, if not months of beatings and abuse for that man now. See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts
