Are journalists covering Yellow Vest protests being targeted? 2 reporters arrested during riots

Journalist organisations have condemned French police after 2 reporters were detained on Saturday – during the 23rd consecutive weekend of the Yellow Vest protests.

‘There’s a question emerging: is there a determination to intimidate journalists? We have an impression some of them are being targeted’ – Vincent Lanier, The National Union of Journalists

‘Since the ‘Yellow Vest’ movement appeared, the number of incidents targeting journalists… when they are filming or photographing, hampers the work of the press and limits the coverage of events which represent crucial public interest’ – Catherine Monnet, Reporters without borders
