London, Sep. 18 – Three employees of Iran’s state television and radio broadcasting corporation, IRIB, were detained in Afghanistan by American troops, according to a notice posted on the organisation’s website on Sunday.

The trio who were picked up in the Afghan capital of Kabul were detained for six hours. They underwent fingerprinting and some of their equipment was confiscated, according to the report.

The report said that the three were in Kabul to film scenes of the election process.

IRIB reporters have in the past been arrested in Iran’s western neighbour Iraq on charges of being Tehran’s spies while working under the pretext of news production. Mostafa Darban, then the bureau chief of Iran’s official news agency, was held for more than two weeks by Baghdad police in August 2004.
