Minneapolis protests: CNN journalist arrested live on air

(COLOMBO, LANKAPUVATH) –A CNN reporter has been released after being arrested while covering protests in Minneapolis over the death of an unarmed black man.

Omar Jimenez was led away in handcuffs while he was live on air early on Friday. His cameraman and producer were also detained, apparently because they did not move on when told.

They were released without charge.

Minnesota governor Tim Walz has apologised, describing the incident as “unacceptable”.

CNN said the arrests violated the constitution.
