2 June 2010

Bethlehem - Ma`an - Reporters Without Borders is urging the Israeli authorities to release a list of the journalists who were arrested during Monday`s raid on the humanitarian flotilla and to say where they are being held.

There were at least 15 foreign journalists travelling with the flotilla who still cannot be reached directly, the Paris-based media watchdog said. These are the names of the journalists known to have been aboard the flotilla:

Reporter Svetoslav Ivanov and cameraman Valentin Vassilev of Bulgarian television station BTV
Muna Shester of the Kuwait News Agency (KUNA)
Talat Hussain, a presenter with Pakistans Aaj TV
Sydney Morning Herald correspondent Paul McGeough and photographer Kate Geraghty
Al Jazeera correspondent Abbas Nasser and cameraman Isaam Zaatar
Mario Damolin, a freelancer working for the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
David Segarra of TeleSUR
Reporter Ayse Sarioglu of the daily Taraf
Reporter Murat Palavar of the Islamist daily Yeni Safak (New Dawn)
TVNET foreign news chief Smeyye Ertekin, producer mit Snmez and cameraman Ersin Esen

An Al Jazeera TV crew was meanwhile attacked by Israeli citizens in the port of Ashdod Monday after the Israeli defense minister gave a news conference about the attack on the flotilla. Walid Al-Omri, Al Jazeeras bureau chief in the Palestinian territories, was injured in the attack, which followed virulent criticism of the Qatar-based TV station in the Israeli media.
