While filming a Qatar World Cup 2022 preview segment in Doha, Danish correspondent Rasmus Tantholdt was interrupted and threatened by a security guard and men in traditional clothing. The journalist showed his credentials and told the security officer that they had the right to film anywhere on public property.
