Journalists held hostage

Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

Following the press conference held in the deep of the night at Castille, journalists and other members of the media were confined to the room where the press conference was held. Unidentified persons, some of which were noted to be people normally seen in the counting halls or known security staff stood in front of the door, impeding the exit of the jornalists. The journalists protested vociferously at this forced arrest as well as the fact tthat the media was given only a few moments for questions.

Among the journalists was one of the sons of murdered journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia.
