Apparently another reporter has been arrested, Newsweek is reporting one of its own, reporter, Journalist and filmmaker Maziar Bahari is being held in Tehran. Bahari is both a Canadian and Iranian citizen. He is only one of 20 Iranian reporters arrested or detained, since the election uprising taking over Iran. This is now completely out of hand.  Some kind of protection for these people who bring the world to us on a minute by minute basis is needed. It is now becoming very clear they require more than just their passports when going into some foreign countires. They need protection.

Perhaps a call for an international law protecting their right to be there is in order. Something..anything, is better than what they have now.
