09 December, 2011 – Huffington Post
New York Times columnist Nick Kristof was detained by police while covering a protest in Bahrain on Friday. Kristof and his videographer, Adam Ellick, were held in a police car as tear gas was fired on protesters. The two journalists were also tear gassed themselves.
Both Kristof and Ellick somehow managed to hang on to their mobile devices and tweeted about the incident while it was going on. Below, see how the detention unfolded.
