Channel 4 News has been in contact with him and his team, and are concerned about the welfare of the team’s local driver who was arrested and assaulted in front of the team, and then separated from them. When last seen he appeared to be bleeding from slashes to his arms.
In common with other foreign media, Channel 4 News was denied journalist visas and has been working without accreditation during the Grand Prix. This afternoon, the team was arrested.
Tonight at 7.25pm, the programme will broadcast an interview with Jonathan Miller, recorded as he was being driven away to the police station.
A Channel 4 News spokeperson said:
“We can confirm that our Foreign Affairs Correspondent Jonathan Miller and his team have been arrested whilst reporting for the programme from a village in Bahrain. Our primary concern is for the safety of the team, and we are working with the appropriate authorities to secure a swift release. We are also working hard to establish the whereabouts of the driver who was assaulted and separated from the group.”
