Erroneous CNN footage angers Serbs

Some of the footage that the CNN news channel used in its Wednesday report on protests in Belgrade over the arrest of war leader Radovan Karadzic was not actually from the Serbian capital.

The dramatic shots of burning barricades and water cannons used against protesters were taken during unrelated riots in another European capital – Hungary’s Budapest.

The mistake angered some Serb activists who said the channel made the event look more violent then it really was.

CNN officials so far have not commented on the controversy.
