Greek journalist, cameraman detained in Skopje

A journalist and cameraman with the Greek Antenna television were detained in Skopje on Saturday.
Mariana Pirgioti and Angelos Misirlis were first detained by representatives of a private company, who asked the Greeks for ID documents and called the police. The police arrested the two for five hours.
The journalist and cameraman had to hand their camera and recordings. The explanation was that the U.S. asked for the equipment and materials.
Greece has undertaken the necessary actions so that the two are released.
