Nigeria military detains French TV journalists
Lagos: Soldiers guarding a city at the heart of ethnic and religious clashes in Nigeria detained and later threw out journalists working for a French television station trying to cover ongoing unrest there.
The military stopped TF1 journalist Jeremie Drieu, a videographer and local journalist Ahmad Salkida as they tried to work on Sunday in the city of Jos, where thousands have been killed in recent years in violence pitting Christians against Muslims. The journalists say the soldiers forced them to leave the city and the state.
A local military spokesman said the journalists failed to get permission to film there, though they already had federal accreditation to work in the country.
