"Stand back from the protesters"... is what this reporter's producer should have been shouting in her ear before she got caught up in a melee covering anti-government riots in Lebanon.

Over the weekend, thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of Beirut over the lack of trash collection… as in picking up the bins. The protest turned violent, leaving the young broadcaster engulfed in police and protesters amid tear gas and water cannons.

Those screams at the end sound pretty authentic.
