    Urumqi Police Seize Cameras During Protest

    On Sept. 4, while covering protests in Urumqi, Associated Press photographer Andy Wong and TV producers David Wivell and Isolda Morillo had their equipment confiscated by paramilitary police. All three are fine and police did not take their documents. The cameras were returned after five hours. The incident occurred as security forces tried to disperse crowds of hundreds of Han Chinese men demonstrating near Communist Party offices in the city, the capital of Xinjiang.
