JERUSALEM -- A producer for Dan Rather says the American journalist's crew was harassed and humiliated by Israeli security officials.

Andrew Glazer, an Emmy-award winning producer at Dan Rather Reports, says crew members were forced to drop their pants for a strip search before seeing an Israeli Cabinet minister.

The allegations were made in a letter to Israeli officials that was obtained by The Associated Press. They are the latest in a swelling list of complaints about how Israeli security officials treat the foreign media.

Glazer wrote in the letter that the former anchorman came to the area to do a story about improving Israeli-Palestinian relations pitched by Israel's Foreign Ministry.
