The Croatian Journalists’ Association (HND) said in a statement on Tuesday that it expected the police to refrain from mistreating journalists, stressing that any obstruction of journalists in the course of their work, and especially the use of force, was unacceptable regardless of the circumstances.

The statement, signed by HND chairman Sasa Lekovic, was prompted by an incident that had occurred on the Croatia-Serbia border at about 1230 hours on Monday when Croatian police took equipment from AFP photographer Andrej Isakovic and a British freelance journalist while they were covering the migrant crisis. The equipment was given back to them only a few hours later.
