Anadolu Agency staff detained briefly in Cairo today
AA Cameraman Ahmed Said and photojournalist Muhammed Hossam was detained by Egyptian soldiers.
An Anadolu Agency cameraman and a photojournalist were briefly detained in Cairo Wednesday while covering police dispersal of a pro-Morsi sit-in in capital’s Rabaa al-Adawiya Square.
The AA staff have been released after police impounded their photos and video footage.
In Wednesday’s forcible dispersal, security forces reportedly use live fire and tear gas to break up crowds of Morsi supporters who vowed to stand their ground at Rabaa al-Adawiya square in capital Cairo.
