CNN senior international correspondent Ivan Watson and his crew were caught in a cloud of tear gas between police and protestors while covering the protests in Istanbul.
“OK, they’re throwing rocks. We’re in between the police and the demonstrators, which you don’t want,” Watson can be heard saying in the video. “There’s tear gas over there …. oh God, the tear gas is pretty bad now.” Seconds later, Watson can be heard coughing heavily, returning to the report several minutes later wearing a gas mask.
