Photojournalist Detained in Darfur

Brad Clift, photographer for the Hartford Courant has been detained and placed under house arrest in the Darfur region of Sudan. As of this morning it was still unclear why Sudanese security officials have detained Mr. Clift, who had been in the area since Thursday, when he met up with a relief group from the Hartford Catholic Worker, which is distributing food at refugee camps near Nyala in western Darfur. In a statement issued yesterday Clift said "I am being accused unjustly for trying to take a picture of someone suffering in a camp".
