Qatari Security Threaten to Break Danish TV Crew’s Camera During Live Pre-World Cup Broadcast

💭 A Danish TV crew’s live broadcast in Qatar was interrupted by security staff who threatened to break their camera over claims they did not have a permit.

TV2 reporter Rasmus Tantholdt was reporting live from a street in Doha ahead of the FIFA World Cup when he was stopped by officials late on Tuesday.

Three men in traditional dress pulled up behind the news anchor in an electric cart and tried to block the camera lens.

Mr Tantholdt was heard saying in English: “You invited the whole world to come here, why can’t we film? It’s a public place.”

After showing them his press accreditation, he added: “You can break the camera, you want to break it? You are threatening us by smashing the camera?”

Qatar’s Supreme Committee for Delivery and Legacy has since apologised.

They said the journalists were “mistakenly interrupted”.

“Upon inspection of the crew’s valid tournament accreditation and filming permit, an apology was made to the broadcaster by on-site security before the crew resumed their activity,” a statement said.

Tournament bosses also said they spoke to Mr Tantholdt and “issued an advisory to all entities to respect the filming permits in place for the tournament”.

Players threaten protests despite bans.
