Chinese officials blocked video cameras from filming at Tiananmen Square on Wednesday... with umbrellas. Reporting from the square, CNN's John Vause was chased around by plainclothes Chinese officials who placed open umbrellas between CNN's cameras and shots of Tiananmen Square. As Vause points out, the men with umbrellas are wearing walkie-talkies and are members of China's vast security network guarding the square during the 20th anniversary of the 1989 Tiananmen Square uprising.
