CNN journalists arrested during Minneapolis protests

May 29, 2020 17:40 IST

A CNN journalist has been taken into police custody during a live broadcast at the site of the protests in Minneapolis, even after clearly identifying himself to officers. Omar Jimenez's crew, including a producer and a camera operator, were also placed in handcuffs. The CNN camera was also taken into custody and continued to record as the crew was handcuffed, with police seemingly unaware that the camera was still on. CNN has criticized the arrest of one of its teams on the ground in Minneapolis in a tweet, and called for their release. CNN said, arrest of the journalist and his crew for doing their jobs, despite identifying themselves is a clear violation of their First Amendment rights.
