French TV journalists demand to go to Iraq
PARIS, Jan 27 (AFP) - Journalists working for state-owned France 3 television on Thursday demanded permission to report from Iraq, three weeks after a French newspaper reporter went missing in the violence-wracked country.

According to the Society of Journalists (SDJ), France Televisions president Marc Tessier has barred journalists working for state-owned networks from travelling to Iraq, with landmark elections there set to take place Sunday.
The Dread Pundit Bluto thinks that it might be against the Geneva Conventions to inflict French journalists on innocent Iraqis.
