An Aljazeera TV crew was arrested today outside of Haifa after filming their report with an Israeli seaside oil refinery as backdrop:

Pan-Arab television station Al-Jazeera said on Sunday that Israeli police had detained its team in Haifa, shortly after the city was hit by a barrage of Hezbollah missiles that killed nine people.

The Doha-based channel said police had detained its Israel correspondent Elias Karram and his team, but did not provide details.

Al-Jazeera said earlier that Israeli authorities had ordered its team away from its seafront oil refinery after it broadcast live footage from the area shortly after the rockets attack.
