Qatari officials approached a Danish TV crew and demanded they stopped filming while they were broadcasting live on TV. The crew were in Doha covering buildup to the World Cup in a public area when authorities showed up. The reporter, Rasmus Tantholdt, showed his credentials and said: “You invited the whole world to come here. Why can’t we film?” The officials then threatened to break the camera when the camera operator did not stop. Tournament organisers have since apologised for the incident.
