Sudan: Australian blogs about his arrest in Sudan

Thomas Hirschvogel blogs about his arrest in Sudan on suspicion of being a spy: “well, the postcards didn't cause any troubles, but the articles about the former rebel groups definetly did. it was just soooooooo stupid to carry them in my luggage. they interrogated me for a few hours and they believe that i'm either a journalist or a spy.”
