Polish photographer arrested in Grodno

From Reporters without Borders:

Adam Tuchlinski, a Polish news photographer with the weekly Przekroj, was arrested by the Belarusian authorities on 6 August in the western city of Grodno as he was about to board a train to return to Poland.

He was taken to a police station and held for several hours. Officials said Tuchlinski, who was travelling on a tourist visa, did not have the necessary accreditation to work in Belarus. As a result, he is now banned from visiting the country for five years. He returned to Poland after being released.
