Palestinian Journalists threatened during Naomi Campbell visit

Maan News Agency | May 22, 2012


RAMALLAH (Ma’an) — The Palestinian Journalists Syndicate condemned the Palestinian Authority’s heavy-handed treatment of reporters on Tuesday covering a supermodel’s visit to Bethlehem.

The PA’s official Palestine TV network had an exclusive interview with Naomi Campbell at a restaurant outside the Church of the Nativity, but other reporters weren’t allowed as much as a photograph.

Security guards accompanying the model harassed reporters and even threatened to break their cameras if they got near, the syndicate, which said its members were “furious,” said in a statement.
