German journalists arrested in Ferguson

20 August 2014

On Monday, two German journalists were arrested in Ferguson, Missouri, by the police and taken to prison while trying to research and report for their newspapers on the shooting of Michael Brown and the sustained anti-police protests which have followed.

Ansgar Graw, who worked for years as the US correspondent for the major daily Die Welt, and Frank Hermann, who has also reported for many years for newspapers like the Stuttgarter Zeitung in Germany and Der Standard in Austria, were held in a prison cell for three hours without justification and subsequently released without comment.

A few hours later on Monday night, 26-year-old Bild reporter Lukas Hermsmeier was arrested as he sought to report on a demonstration in Ferguson. According to his newspaper’s editors, he was only released on Tuesday.

A photographer for Getty Images was also taken away in handcuffs during a demonstration on Monday, and last week, two reporters from the Washington Post and Huffington Post were arrested and held for several hours.
