CNN reporter Ivan Watson experienced first-hand the political unrest in Turkey when he was detained by police while delivering a live, on-air report Saturday.

Watson was in Istanbul covering the one-year anniversary of the Taksim Square protests when he was surrounded by plain-clothes officers demanding to see his passport. Watson showed his press card before being pulled away, camera rolling.

“We’re being detained right now,” Watson says before the camera cuts out. “I’m being kicked.”

Watson tweeted about the incident, including an update that he had been released in under an hour and that police apologized:

Fareed Zakaria suspension lifted by CNN, Time

All is forgiven for Time magazine writer and CNN host Fareed Zakaria, who last week was suspended by both outlets for apparent plagiarism.
CNN said Thursday that Zakaria’s weekly GPS public affairs program returns to the air Aug. 26. Time said in a separate statement that Zakaria’s column would resume with the magazine’s Sept. 7 issue.

Zakaria was suspended by both outlets last Friday for lifting several paragraphs from a New Yorker magazine essay for his use in a recent Time column. A version of that column, which examined gun control, was subsequently posted on CNN’s website.Zakaria apologized, acknowledging a “terrible mistake.”
CNN and Time said Thursday that each had conducted a thorough review and found Zakaria’s recent “journalistic lapse” to be an isolated incident.
