British TV crew arrested in Bahrain
A team of journalists for Britain's Channel 4 News was arrested Sunday after covering Bahrain's Grand Prix race, which went ahead after a week of angry protests away from the F1 desert circuit.
"We can confirm that our foreign affairs correspondent Jonathan Miller and his team have been arrested whilst reporting for the programme from a village in Bahrain," a Channel 4 News spokesman said.
Miller left before the end of the race to report on the protests.
"Our primary concern is for the safety of the team, and we are working with the appropriate authorities to secure a swift release," said the spokesman.
"We are also working hard to establish the whereabouts of the driver who was assaulted and separated from the group."
Miller managed to talk to Channel 4 News while being taken to the police station, revealing that he and his team were surrounded by riot police after being detained following a short car chase. (...)
