Rabat – Two journalists from the state-owned TV channel 2M were surrounded and pushed by protesters while covering the July 20 demonstration in Al Hoceima.
A video filmed by Moroccan news outlet Le 360 shows a group of protesters surrounding and threatening a cameraman and a reporter. Some of the protesters attempt to seize the journalist’s camera in order to prevent them from covering the demonstration.
