Israel police raid Palestine TV studios

JERUSALEM : Israeli police raided the east Jerusalem studios of Palestine TV on Friday and briefly detained three staff for questioning, a spokeswoman said. ‘Police carried out searches at the headquarters of the television channel, as part of an investigation into the content of its programmes,’ spokeswoman Luba Samri told AFP. ‘Three employees were arrested, questioned and released,’ she said, adding that ‘no programmes were interrupted and the investigation is ongoing.’ Israeli public radio said police suspected Palestine TV of broadcasting ‘incitements to violence.’ A Palestinian media report online said two cameramen and one guest on the channel's ‘Good Morning Jerusalem’ programme were held for questioning.
