Our colleagues over at RFE/RL's excellent "Journalists In Trouble" page have posted a video interview with Turkmen correspondent Yovshan Annagurban that is worth checking out, if you haven't already seen it.
In the clip, Annagurban speaks about the time in 1997 when he was arrested and imprisoned in Ashgabat as he attempted to leave Turkmenistan to attend a journalism training course at RFE/RL in Prague.
He was eventually freed -- 13 days later.
But he tells the story much better than I do.
Watch for yourself.
