Chinese authorities blocked CNN's broadcast in the country after a reporter was 'kicked, pushed and punched' while trying to cover the trial of a human rights activist in Beijing - and the police abuse was caught on camera by his news crew.

David McKenzie was covering the trial of Xu Zhiyong, a former law lecturer, who was arrested in July for organizing protests against official corruption. 

While walking up to the court where Zhiyong was scheduled to appear, police physically barred McKenzie and his crew from getting close and the situation 'violently escalated'.
