KERCH, Ukraine - Correspondents from the Anadolu Agency have been stopped by Russian soldiers in the Crimea from entering the city of Kerch after they were spotted recording a military convoy of almost 50 vehicles leaving the city.

The soldiers tried to seize the correspondent’s cameras, but instead forced them into deleting the footage they had recorded.

The reporters were then told by the commander of the Russian troops not to follow but that they had to wait at the entrance to Kerch until the convoy had departed.
