Times Correspondent: I Was Punched In The Face By Pakistani Gov’t Agents

Warning: Actual media news: New York Times correspondent Carlotta Gall told ABC News today that she was assaulted by Pakistani government officials while reporting in Quetta:

According to Gall, the agents broke down the door to her hotel room, after she refused to let them enter, and began to seize her notebooks and laptop. When she tried to stop them, she says one of the men punched her twice in the face and head. “I fell backwards onto a coffee table smashing the crockery,” she recalled in a written account of the incident. “I have heavy bruising on my arms, on my temple and my cheekbone, and swelling on my left eye and a sprained knee.”
