Police bash media at cricket Test

Submitted by rickeyre on April 18, 2006 - 11:57pm

An extraordinary situation in Chittagong on Sunday when police used excessive force to stop a press photographer from entering a cricket arena, followed with a sit-down protest by his colleagues on the pitch, delaying the start of the match between Bangladesh and Australia. This, followed by further clashes between the police and the journalists, putting one reporter in hospital in a coma.

I'm covering this story extensively in my cricket blog. If you're interested in this rather unlikely attack on the working media, I'll see you there.
