Media accreditation denied to some

THE FOREIGN Affairs Ministry refused to grant accreditation to certain journalists for the Bush-Putin summit. The ministry refused to release the names of those rejected or provide reasons behind the rejection.

The daily SME speculates that accreditation could have been denied in cases in which the ministry suspected journalistic ties to terrorist groups.
