Reporters Without Borders (RSF) has called for the immediate release of the journalist Ismail Bouzreibeh, who has been detained by the eastern region authorities, since December 20.

“Ismail Ali Bouzreibeh has been detained without legal grounds since last Thursday,” RSF said in a statement.

The journalist working for the Libyan news agency of “Al-Gaima” and Ajdabiya TV, was arrested during his coverage of a cultural event in the city of Ajdabiya, under accusations of working for Al-Nabaa news Channel, banned by the eastern authorities.
