FOREIGN JOURNALISTS AND ASSAM COVERAGE



http://www.assamtribune.com/scripts/detailsnew.asp?id=sep0419/at058

The above report in Assam Tribune claims foreign journalists have been asked to leave Assam.

No FCC member journalist referred to in the above report was "asked to leave Assam," nor "escorted by the police" or "put on the next available flight" out of the state.

No authorised person in the Foreign Correspondents' Club of South Asia (FCC) is known to have said what has been attributed to "sources" in the report.

As far as the FCC is concerned, none of our members has reported to us so far that they have been asked to leave Assam.
