Veteran CNN correspondent Anna Coren was preparing to go live on CNN International when a peaceful demonstration in Hong Kong quickly escalated when riot police charged them. As evidenced in the video below — Coren unfortunately got caught in the middle.
As she reported, “We have just been charged by riot police into the train this is absolute mayhem. They have just come at the protesters and wielding and it is pandemonium inside here. I have no idea how they are planning to disperse these crowds. It is absolute chaos. I have never witnessed anything quite like this where there was a peaceful, peaceful demonstration inside.”
On Twitter, Coren called it “insane.”
