Stop Fundamentalism – Iran arrested a Kuwaiti TV reporter and his cameraman on November 11, says Reporters without Borders. The journalists were arrested in the Iranian southern city of Abadan on charges of spying and entering the country illegally. The two journalists, Adel Al-Yahya and Raed Al-Majed, work for Al-Adalah television station which apparently is owned by a Shiite businessman close to Tehran, says the right group.
“The two men work for a privately-owned TV station and were making a program of a social nature,” said a Kuwaiti official to AFP rejecting Iran’s allegation that the two were involved in espionage activities against Iran. He stressed that they had entered Iran holding a visa.
Kuwait says it maintains contact with Iranian authorities to see their release as soon as possible.
