ʿAmudah: PYD detains journalists

KURDWATCH, March 1, 2014—On February 6, 2014, the Asayiş, the security service of the Democratic Union Party (PYD), detained Farhad Hame (employee of the Iraqi-Kurdish television station Rûdaw) and Faruq Tikhubi (employee of the Syrian television station Orient) for an hour in ʿAmudah, because neither of the journalists had obtained accreditation from the PYD. Both men wanted to report on a newly established children’s aid organization.
