Journalists ‘shoved and sworn at’ by NY police

The Associated Press has said two of its journalists were “shoved” and sworn at by police in New York dispersing protesters after the start of curfew on Tuesday night.

Despite carrying press credentials and identifying themselves as journalists, officers “surrounded, shoved and yelled expletives” at the two men, who captured the incident on video, AP said on Wednesday.

Law enforcement officials said they would “review” the incident “as soon as possible.”

Dozens of media workers covering the unrest in the US have reported being targeted by security forces using tear gas, rubber bullets and pepper spray.
