Reuters reported that its freelance television cameraman Noor was arrested by Iraqi troops at his home in the northern town of Tal Afar in May 2005 and was ordered detained indefinitely by the CRRB, which oversees detentions in Iraq.

A U.S. military spokesman told the news agency that Noor was determined to be “an imperative threat to the coalition forces and the security of Iraq” and his case would be reviewed within six months U.S. officials have not said what he is accused of. Reuters said he was held at camp Bucca, in southern Iraq.
