Sjoerd den Daas was accosted by the official, who was wearing a red armband, as he worked for Dutch broadcaster NOS covering the games.

The journalist tried to continue broadcasting as the official pushed him away from the camera, before the TV station cut back to the studio.

“Our correspondent (den Daas) was pulled away from the camera by security guards at 12:00 pm live in the NOS Journaal. Unfortunately, this is increasingly becoming a daily reality for journalists in China. He is fine and was able to finish his story a few minutes later,” they wrote.

I'm not really sure what any of the journalists expected.  It isn't like the CCP has kept their actions on the down-low.  I noticed one of the comments on the piece explaining that the guard was just telling him to "move to the "acceptable spot for interviews".  Something about pathways and grass.

We really shouldn't be associating in elective activities with a government that takes reporters like that
