In Simferopol, "Crimean community defense volunteer squad" attacked foreign journalists

15.03.2014, 23:46

in Simferopol a group of young thugs attacked two journalists of the German newspaper "Bild", who were working in a cafe on Kyivska Street. In particular, one of the thugs assaulted the "Bild" news photographer Andreas Tielen saying: "Occupants, get lost from Crimea!" Another journalist tried to explain to the attacker that they were working for a newspaper and just doing their job. But the attacker grabbed the journalist's laptop and made a call for the volunteer squad to come over and detain the 'occupants'. The journalists managed to take back the laptop and had to flee in a car.
