ULAN UDE, August 25 (Itar-Tass) — Police in the Karymsk district, Zabaikalye Territory, detained a group of Japanese television journalists who were trying to film the passage of Kim Jong-Il's train on Thursday morning, a regional prosecutor told Itar-Tass.
"They were detained near the station of Tarskaya by agents of the Karymsk office of the regional Federal Security Service department, jointly with the guards from the federal state enterprise "Security on Railway Transport of the Russian federation."
Karymsk district prosecutor Denis Kurochkin said the guards on the railway bridge across the Ingoda river, a strategic facility, noticed a group of persons in restricted area, who were video shooting it.
"The Code of Administrative Offenses stipulates responsibility for unauthorized entry into protected facilities. The guards detained the foreigners, called the FSB and convoyed the detainees to the Karymsk district police station," Kurochkin said.
Police ascertained that the detainees are representatives of Japan's Sapporo Television Broadcasting company, who were trying to film the passage of the North Korean leader's train.
They had cameras and the necessary documents on them. They did not carry any banned objects and have not violated the migration or criminal legislation," the prosecutor's office said, noting however, that they might have to pay a fine up to 500 rubles for administrative offense.
