A camera crew of the Evangelische Omroep (EO) was robbed in Utrecht on Thursday afternoon, the broadcaster reports. They were robbed of camera equipment, but the perpetrators were later apprehended.

The incident happened to a camera crew from the TV program Dit is de Kwestie, which was filming at a secondary school in the Leidsche Rijn district. The team was ambushed by two men who threatened with a screwdriver. After a brief skirmish, they fled, with the equipment, in a van.

After tips from bystanders, a ‘manhunt’ followed, after which the robbers were trapped on Franciscusdreef. A camera with a tripod was found in the bus. The two occupants, aged 17 and 18, have been arrested, police said.

“Just now that the safety of journalists in our country is under attention this week, this is a very wry illustration of this,” said editor-in-chief of the program Tenco van der Hee. “But I’m especially happy that everyone was unharmed. And with the great alertness of the bystanders, which allowed the police to act very quickly.”

On Wednesday it was announced that the safety of journalists in the Netherlands is declining, according to a report by Free Press Unlimited.

This is the Issue is a new program that should appear on the tube at the end of May. The broadcast for which recordings were made was about the question to what extent the Dutch would be prepared to fight for their homeland, as is now being done by Ukrainians. Van der Hee calls it “a bit harsh” that this event is the reason for the announcement of the new program. He hopes that the captured images are still present on the recovered cameras.

No one was injured in the incident, but the EO team “was shocked”, according to Van der Hee.

Doctor Strange actress Zara Phythian jailed for eight years for child abuse | NOW

British actress Zara Phythian has been jailed for eight years for sexually abusing a girl. Her husband Victor Marke is sentenced to 14 years in prison. The couple were found guilty in Nottingham court last week.

Marke gets a longer prison sentence because according to the judge he was “the driving force behind the abuse”. He was sentenced to four years for abusing a girl and another ten years for abusing the second victim with Phythian, the report said. BBC

Phytian and her husband abused the girl from 2002, when she was 13. Both denied the charges, but a jury thought otherwise on Monday. The judge told Phythian that she was probably influenced by her husband “from a young age”. She was eighteen years old at the time.

The 38-year-old Phythian is best known for her role in the film Doctor Strange from 2016, in which she starred with Benedict Cumberbatch.
