RSF urges Taliban to release newsmen

PESHAWAR- The Reporters San Frontiers (RSF) has urged the Taliban to release Michel Peyrard, a reporter for the Paris-based weekly, and two Pakistani newsmen arrested on 8th in Jalalabad.

RSF secretary-general Robert Menard and the RSF Asia Pacific head Vincent Barossel, who arrived here on a special mission, asked the local newsmen and human rights activists to help them to secure the release of detained newsmen.

They said all the three persons were genuine journalists and not spies as dubbed by the Taliban in Jalalabad.

Michel, Irfan Qureshi and Mukarram Khan were arrested on 8th by the Taliban when they were traveling through Jalalabad and they were being grilled in a prison cell since their arrest.
