After a pregnant Al Jazeera producer was asked to remove her bra during a security check, the Foreign Press Association in Israel is threatening to boycott news briefings. Najwan Simri Diab underwent a security check Tuesday in order to attend Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's annual briefing with the foreign press in Jerusalem. She said she was taken aside and asked first to remove her coat and her shirt, and then her bra, or she would not be permitted to attend the event.
