Two German journalists were arrested at the Greek border with Turkey after allegedly entering a restricted area, local police said.
The pair, reportedly a 31-year-old man and a 33-year-old woman, work for television station ARD and said they were researching a story about the migration route that passes from this area, according to Greek police.
They were taken to a local police station and will appear before a prosecutor today.
Journalists arrested in Greece over such incidents are usually released pending trial.
More recently, there have also been reports of illegal pushbacks of migrants back into Turkey, though the Greek state has officially denied such practises.
Last week, Turkish troops arrested two Greek soldiers in the same area. The two men, who are on trial in Turkey, say they lost their way in poor weather and entered Turkish territory by mistake.
