LONDON: A team of BBC Arabic journalists covering the Hamas attack on Israel and its unfolding conflict were stopped by police in Tel Aviv and held at gunpoint, the British broadcaster reported.

The journalists, who included Muhannad Tutunji and Haitham Abudiab, were returning to their hotel when their car — marked in red tape with the words “TV” — was intercepted by Israeli police.

They were reportedly dragged out of the vehicle and pushed against a wall and searched, despite the two identifying themselves as members of the press and showing their BBC press badges.
