Journalists confronted by New York City police as they cover George Floyd protests

Journalists from Associated Press TV were confronted by officers from the New York Police Department as they filmed the ongoing protests in the city.

At one point the crew were shoved and forced to abandon their coverage.

Members of the media were on the streets to film the thousands of demonstrators who remained out protesting past the 8pm curfew time.

Residents, essential workers, buses and truck deliveries were exempt from the curfew.

In the footage the journalists can be heard explaining that they are “essential workers”.
