Subject: Detention of Ma'an News Agency's Chief English Editor

United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization UNESCO and the office in the occupied Palestinian territories and Gaza strip is expressing deep concern about the detention of the Chief English Editor of the Ma'an News Agency, Mr. Jared Malsin, a U.S. citizen by the Israeli authorities at the Ben Gurion International airport on 12 January, 2010 and the plans to deport him.

Ma'an is editorially independent and pluralistic Palestinian news agency, based in Bethlehem. During the past five years, UNESCO has worked together with Ma'an to supported several initiatives and projects in cooperation with Ma'an that promote freedom of expression, access to information and development of the Palestinian society.

We urge the Israeli authorities to consider Mr. Malsin's immediate and unconditional release.

Louise Haxthausen,

Head of the UNESCO Office in Ramallah
