Correspondent Mark Stone and his crew from U.K. cable news channel Sky News were detained by Chinese Police on live television this morning. Stone was doing a liveshot remembering the anniversary of the Tiananmen Square protests, when police detained him and his crew. Stone says that they must have thought they were filming something for later, and were not aware that they were live across the globe. The video captures them being held in a police van, as well as a Chinese police officer videotaping them.

It is incredibly compelling footage, and as we have reported many times before, foreign media is often on the receiving end of this kind of treatment.
