A team of journalists for Britain's Channel 4 News was released on Sunday after being detained while covering the Bahrain GP, which went ahead after a week of angry protests away from the track.

Foreign affairs correspondent Jonathan Miller wrote on microblogging site Twitter that he and his crew had been released and were being deported, but that his Bahraini driver and an activist who was travelling with them were still being held.  Security forces told the Channel 4 team that the pair would be released soon. Miller and his team were arrested while reporting from a village in Bahrain after the race.
