Reuters journalist arrested for carrying rucksack and using a laptop
You all know how I feel about Freedom bags and transparent rucksacks and I'm sure that they wouldn't have stopped this particular situation, but Ian has just sent me a link to an article on the front page of today's Guardian (see highlighted section on the left) where a French Reuter's journalist was arrested and handcuffed for suspicious behaviour and being a public nuisance.
This is just such a shocking story and I'm glad it's made the front page of The Guardian and hope it gets a lot wider coverage. The guy in question looks white and so there were no ethnic issues here, but he had a French accent so therefore must be automatically suspicious!!!!
