Bosnian Serbs detained and beat an Associated Press reporter Friday as he was investigating a reported clash between Serbs and federation police.
Srecko Latal, based in Sarajevo, was driven to Serb-held Lukavica after he was taken into custody.
Latal was later released in exchange for two Serbs.
At the IFOR checkpoint it was peaceful.
But 100 meters away, Associated Press reporter Srecko Latal was seized as he and other journalists investigated reports of a clash between federation police and Serbs.
The Sarajevo police had reported early Friday that Serbs were looting a house on the boundary line.
No injuries were reported.
Latal was walking around with NATO troops and U-N police when one of the Serbs in the crowd grabbed his arm.
As the crowds watched, Latal was pushed around by the Bosnian Serbs.
The Italian IFOR took Latal away and searched him.
Journalists present at the scene tried to explain to the Italians that Latal was a journalist.
The Italians took Latal from Federation territory and handed him over to the Serb police.
Latal was later released by the Bosnian police in exchange for two Serbs.
