Ukrainian journalist arrested ... live on the air

Ukrainian journalist Hanna Horzhenko, in Minsk, Belarus to cover the lead-up to that country's presidential 'election,' was arrested, along with her camerman, by authorities -- while doing a live on-air report!

Have a listen here.

Unbelievable.

It was posted at this blog for Canadian journalists on March 13. Not much disccussion on the site. There seems to be very little outrage in western journalist circles over this violation of freedom of the press in the last communist bastion in Europe.
