Journalist Yotam Feldman released from Egypt

March 22, 2010 04:32

Israeli journalist Yotam Feldman, who was detained by the Egyptian military a week ago, was released to Israel overnight Sunday.

Feldman, 30, was questioned by the military prosecutor's office in Egypt after he tried to infiltrate the Sinai border in an effort to gain first-hand experience on the plight of African refugees attempting to find a safe haven in Israel.

Feldman, an employee of Channel 10 and Haaretz, said upon landing that he did not regret his actions, since he claimed his actions were necessary for completing his story.

Feldman said he was treated roughly while he was held with the refugees, but received better treatment in Cairo. He said the Egyptians make a distinction in their treatment of white people and their treatment of Africans.
