Azerbaijani officials detained three Swedish TV journalists while they were preparing to cover an opposition demonstration in Baku on 17 April. The journalists were subsequently deported on 18 April. An official at the Interior Ministry commented that the three were deported as they lacked the proper accreditation. However, one of the journalists, My Rohwedder Street, contends that she and her colleagues had not concealed their profession when they applied for visas.
