Watchdog Bite: OSCE blasts RT crew arrest in US
The rights of journalists have just won backing from a major European security watchdog. The OSCE sent a letter to the U.S. Secretary of State condemning the recent detention of an RT news team. The organisation is calling on Hillary Clinton for an independent investigation into the case accusing American police of going too far in their attempts to maintain order. The RT crew was arrested while covering a peaceful protest outside a military academy in the state of Georgia, dubbed the 'school of assassins'. The two crew members spent around 32 hours in jail before they were released on bail.
