CNN reporter Omar Jimenez was cuffed as he reported live from Minneapolis
CNN reporter Omar Jimenez was arrested live on air as he reported from the chaotic Minneapolis riots this morning. The reporter, wearing a face mask, could be seen being cuffed by two armed policemen while a cameraman filming the scene. A colleague commenting from CNN studios can be heard saying: "If you're just tuning in, you are watching our correspondent, Omar Jimenez, being arrested in Minnesota.
"We're not sure why our correspondent is being arrested."
The cameraman appeared not to be involved in the arrest and a member of the crew can be seen heading for one of the policemen to recover Mr Jimenez's microphone as he is being taken away.
CNN has since confirmed both the producer and the camera operator were also arrested.
