Correspondents Don Gas Masks To Cover Escalating Protests In Turkey

Protests in Istanbul, Turkey have been slowly escalating all day, with the police lobbing tear gas at the protesters, and the protesters responding in kind by lighting fireworks in the direction of the police.

CNN has been simulcasting CNN International for an hour or so now, with Arwa Damon on the ground in Taksim Square and Nick Paton Walsh above the fray (though not above the gas). Damon donned a gas mask to report on the clashes, and it makes for riveting video.

WATCH:

On MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” Richard Engel also wore a gas mask to report on the clashes from Taksim Square.

Fox News showed some live video from the square, but did not do any liveshots with reporters there.
