RUSSIA APOLOGIZES TO JOURNALISTS: REUTERS' Thomas Grove wrote Russia "apologised on Wednesday to two foreign journalists who were repeatedly questioned and detained by police" during a trip to report on the 2014 Sochi Olympics preparations. Russia's Foreign Ministry said in a statement that local law enforcement officials abused their posts in the incidents last week, leading to "a series of unwarranted actions towards the citizens of Norway." The statement read, "In this regard we apologise to Mr. Bogen and Mr. Aune. The current situation will undoubtedly be worked out in detail and those guilty will receive the corresponding punishment. We would like to assure you that the executive authorities of the Russian Federation will take all necessary measures to avoid the repetition of similar cases in the future" (REUTERS, 11/6).
