Attack on ARD film crew[edit]

In February, 2013 German television crew from ARD was attacked by a group of men in at least 4 vehicles.[3] The ARD crew including correspondent Christine Adelhardt had been filming in the village of Da Yan Ge Zhuang (大閆各莊) in Juyang,[4] Sanhe city.[3] A group of men in two vehicles drove to the ARD crew and intimidated them. Two other vehicles joined the group of men and pursued the fleeing ARD van on the highway.[5] The ARD van was forced to a halt and 5 to 6 of the men got out to smash the windshield of the van with baseball bats.[5] The ARD van was able to get away and sought help on passing two motorcycle policemen, who tried stopping the men from once again attacking the ARD crew.[5] However, only after police reinforcements arrived was the situation brought under control.[3]

According to statement from the Foreign Correspondents Club of China condemning the attack, a witness identified one of the vehicles involved in the attack as belonging to the "Da Yan Ge Zhuang village communist party secretary".[5] The ARD crew was taken into police custody and questioned for 16 hours then released.[3] A police officer told an ARD reporter that the attackers had been "offended" because the crew did not ask for permission to film in the village.[3]
