Incident: al-Hajj detained, threatened

This month an al-Jazeera cameraman Sami Muhyideed al-Hajj will be detained by US forces on the Afghan-Pakistani border while on assignment. He will then be transferred to GTMO.

In four year's time, notes from his lawyer's visit will be reported upon in the media. According to the reports, the US will attempt to coerce Hajj into being their spy, threatening the life of his family (wife and five year old) if he does not cooperate.


Al-Hajj's picture is shown on a poster during a protest by his colleagues at Al Jazeera. See Don't Bomb Us, a blog by Al Jazeera staffers.

I'm not sure which article you are referring to. I have linked in the post above to a Guardian article upon which the blog post is based: http://www.guardian.co.uk/international/story/0,3604,1578134,00.html
Is that what you mean?
