Reuters camera crew hit by rubber bullets as more journalists attacked at U.S. protestsTwo members of a Reuters TV crew were hit by rubber bullets and a photographer’s camera was smashed in Minneapolis on Saturday night as attacks against journalists covering civil unrest in U.S. cities intensified. Footage taken by cameraman Julio-Cesar Chavez showed a police officer aiming directly at him as police fired rubber bullets, pepper spray and tear gas to disperse about 500 protesters in the southwest of the city shortly after the 8 p.m. curfew. “A police officer that I’m filming turns around points his rubber-bullet rifle straight at me,” said Chavez.
