Authorities in the Philippines have arrested journalist Maria Ressa, who leads a news website that has clashed with President Rodrigo Duterte’s administration.
In a live stream posted by Rappler on Wednesday, officials of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) cybercrime unit were shown speaking to Ressa inside the news website’s headquarters. The NBI is a government agency under the Department of Justice.
Rappler earlier said that an officer has prohibited its journalists from taking photos and videos inside her office, where the arrest warrant was served.
