Reuters protests about detention of staff in Iraq

Seems that Reuters has now made a formal complaint to the US military about the detention of three members of their staff.

According to this Ha’aretz article, the Reuters staff were detained for 72 hours, on suspicion of posing as journalists in order to shoot down helicopters.

I hope the military do a proper investigation, but in a place like Fallujah I guess its better for the US Army to be safe rather than sorry.
