Al-Jazeera reporter 'banned from traveling'

Jan. 20, 2011 9:42 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 20, 2011 9:43 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities recently prevented a West Bank-based Al-Jazeera correspondent from traveling to Jordan via the Allenby Bridge border, a Palestinian media watchdog said Wednesday.

Forces offered no explanation to Awad Alrjoub as to the reason for this restriction, the Palestinian Center for Development and Media Freedoms said in a statement. The incident allegedly occurred on Jan. 17.

MADA "strongly condemns the Israeli policy of banning journalists from foreign travel and moving between the Palestinian territories," the statement said, calling on the international community "to exercise real pressure on Israel to halt its practices against Palestinian journalists and allow them to travel and move freely."
