News cars, cameras seized by New Brunswick shale gas protesters
More fireworks at an anti-fracking protest in New Brunswick.
Reporters from CTV and Global have had a personal car, satellite truck and camera equipment seized by about five protestors in Rexton.
The group confronted the team from CTV around noon on Saturday. Global reporter Laura Brown got into her car and locked the door, but was threatened by demonstrators and told to get out and leave it.
Brown's news director Jim Haskins says she refused at first, but felt the situation became unsafe and unstable. Brown got out of the car, locked it and walked away. She's safe at an RCMP detachment giving a statement to police.
Demonstrations against shale gas development in Rexton turned violent Thursday as police cars were torched, dozens of people arrested, guns and explosives seized.
The Premier has vowed to restart talks with a First Nation angered by the gas development.
