PA Police Hand Over 3 Journalists in 'Area A'

The PA police this evening (Monday) handed over to the IDF three journalists who had been in 'Area A' (under the Oslo Accords, the 'Palestinian Territories' were divided into three areas.  Area A covers about 17% and falls under the nominal security and civil control of the Palestinian Authority (PA), although the Israeli army reserves the right to enter) due to having no previous coordination between them and Israeli authorities.

The journalists were brought in for questioning, but are expected to be released later this evening.
