It is reported from Agadez that a South African television crew is stranded in Niger after police confiscated their passports.

It is alleged that the crew has been released and is hoping to leave by today.

The crew was held at a police station on Saturday, but not formally arrested.

Expedition leader Johan Badenhorst says that the all the locals, including the police, have been friendly and helpful.

It appears the local police were nervous about the group’s safety, given the presence of rebels in the area.
