German TV crew filming at China factory attacked
German broadcaster ARD says one of its crews was attacked and detained for nine hours while filming at a Chinese factory for a story about pollution.
Correspondent Christine Aldehardt said a SWAT team rescued them from the factory cafeteria Saturday as workers outside chanted “death to the foreign spies.”
She said security guards detained the four-person crew as they filmed outside the Do-Fluoride factory, which makes industrial chemicals. Their driver and a local activist were held, too.
