Authorities in the Democratic Republic of Congo have expelled two British journalists, including a photographer who has contributed to AFP coverage, their colleagues said on Friday.

The two had been reporting on armed groups in the volatile Nord-Kivu region of the central African country, accompanied by a Congolese AFP journalist and members of a local non-government group.

Army officials detained and questioned the three reporters on Monday and confiscated their equipment.

On Wednesday authorities released the Congolese reporter and ordered the two British nationals to leave the country on the grounds that they did not have the correct visas or accreditation. The journalists denied the claim.

The two British journalists were in Rwanda on Friday after crossing the border.

AFP management said it found the authorities’ decision “regrettable”.
