Journalists from Russia's REN-TV company, who were released in Qatar the other day, still hope to become accredited in that Arab emirate on the Persian Gulf's western coast.
With this in mind, Dmitry Shtokolov, a correspondent for the "24" program, and cameraman Maxim Yevdokimov are to visit the Qatar foreign-press agency.
Both Shtokolov and Yevdokimov were detained by Qatar police April 12 because they lacked official accreditation documents. The two men were subsequently released in the evening of that same day.
The REN-TV film crew, which arrived in Qatar, plans to cover a trial involving two Russian citizens, who are charged with complicity in the assassination of former Chechen separatists' leader Zelimkhan Yandarbiyev.
