March 15 (UPI) -- Sky News correspondent Mark Stone was giving a live report from Beijing on the anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre when he was detained by Chinese police.

The incident was captured by a Sky News camera operator and broadcast live to viewers of the British English cable channel. An English-speaking police officer continued recording Stone from a portable camera during the detention process.

Stone says they were detained for saying an unspecified word, though the officer says they were stopped from filming because they didn't have the right permits.
