An Ohio newspaper has filed a federal lawsuit against the government after a reporter and a photographer were detained and had cameras confiscated at a tank plant.
Military police told the journalists photography of the tank plant was prohibited.
The lawsuit says the photographer was handcuffed and threatened. It was filed against four military police officers, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and a plant official. It seeks money and an order prohibiting the military from interfering with lawful photography of the plant.
A message seeking comment from the Department of Defense hasn't been returned.
