BERLIN (AFP) – Berlin protested yesterday against Moscow’s decision to ban from the World Cup a German journalist who broke the story on Russia’s vast doping scandal, slamming the decision as “wrong”.

“We view this measure by the Russian authorities to invalidate (Hajo) Seppeln’s visa as wrong. And we call on the Russian leadership to allow this German correspondent to enter the country to report on the football World Cup tournament,” said German government spokesman Steffen Seibert.
