Lebanon Deported Reuters Journalist after Questioning

Lebanon deported a Reuters correspondent after questioning him on arrival at Beirut airport at the start of a reporting assignment last month, detaining him overnight before putting him on a flight to Jordan. Suleiman al-Khalidi, a Jordanian national, flew to Beirut on Aug. 2 but was stopped by officials at passport control who took him aside for questioning and asked him to surrender his company laptop computer and mobile phone, Khalidi said.
