Many thanks to CPJ for this and to Roy Greenslade for placing it in his Guardian blog.

Indian election crowd attack journalists

Covering election counts in India can be rather scary. A group of Indian journalists, numbering maybe 100, were forced to lock themselves into a school after being attacked by 4,000-strong crowd.

TV equipment, cameras and vehicles were damaged in the melee at the school, which was being used as an election centre, in the city of Jhansi, Uttar Pradesh.

Rest of story.
