Turkish police detained journalist Ivan Watson while he was reporting live on-air Saturday.

In the video, above, Watson is describing the scene in central Istanbul, when plainclothes police officers begin surrounding him (around the 3:00 mark). The CNN correspondent, who is based in Istanbul, was reporting from Taksim Square, where he says Turkish riot police were on-hand to prevent demonstrations on the one-year anniversary of last summer’s Gezi Park protests.
