A man has been arrested after allegedly stealing a journalist’s phone straight from his hands during a live broadcast in Egypt.

Mahmoud Ragheb, a reporter for the news site Youm7, was filming the aftermath of an earthquake live from the streets of Cairo when a man on a motorbike sped past and seized his phone.

The alleged thief unknowingly broadcast his face to more than 20,000 people who were watching the livestream at the time, as he left the scene smoking a cigarette. Clips of the incident were later widely shared on social media.
