Police threaten, swipe camera from CNN crew in Cairo
Cairo, Egypt (CNN) -- A CNN crew working to cover the clashes between security forces and protesters in Cairo felt the wrath of Egypt's police on Friday.
CNN Senior International Correspondent Ben Wedeman said he and photojournalist Mary Rogers were under an overpass and behind a column as protesters and police were clashing.
Plainclothes police arrived, surrounded the CNN team and wanted "to haul us off," Wedeman said.

I've been seeing lots of reports of reporters being arrested. It makes me wonder if they are trying to round up journalists so they can change those rubber bullets to live ammunition.

2. This is typical of fascism. Shut down the media so you can hide the atrocities.
The same way Rumsfeld, Bush and Rove hid things.
