Be careful when you next take photos

Chinese daily Lianhe Wanbao reports that one of its photographers was arrested and detained by police for one hour for taking photos of Saturday morning’s flood.

In its Saturday evening edition, the local newspaper put a photo of its photographer, with visible handcuff marks still on his wrist, and that of a policeman side by side on its front page, under a headline that said, “Photographer arrested because of taking photos”.

This is extremely shocking... be very careful when you next take your pictures... you never know when you can end up in the same predicament!

So much for STOMP's citizen journalism practice!
