Journalist Khadija İsmaylova, 4 hours detention at Baku airport

Khadija Ismayilova  was released at  about 01:00, she told Turan.  They demanded from her a flash card and even wanted  to take her to the police, but then returned to the customs department and released, but did not return a flash card. "In the end, they told me that the flash card is not a usb card, and therefore they do not need it.  Then I  joined the flash card to the camera and showed them that the card is empty. They were very angry," said Ismailova.
