Egyptian Military Takes CNN Camera During a Live Feed

An Egyptian military officer stole a CNN camera on Friday. After a "heated conversation" the officer returned the camera:

BEN WEDEMAN (via phone): Yes, we're fine. What happened was they clearly didn't want us to be taking any pictures, certainly not any live pictures from very close to four armored personnel carriers that had been brought into on the edge of a bridge leading into the square, where they've broken up these clashes between supporters and opponents of the Muslim Brotherhood.

The officer took away the camera. We had a heated conversation with the Egypt (UNINTELLIGIBLE). And we soon became friends. We stepped away for a cup of tea, and just a few minutes later, the officer returned the camera, and everyone was fine and we're now good friends.

And it was just one of those incidents that one has on days like this.

It could have been a lot worse, I suppose. Here's a link to the video.
