Footage taken by activists purportedly shows French journalists being arrested while covering a protest at Adani's Queensland coal terminal where two demonstrators had their hands locked inside a barrel. Members of activist group Frontline Action on Coal are seen demonstrating against work on Adani's proposed Carmichael coal mine at the Abbot Point terminal just north of Bowen. One of the men arrested appears to be Hugo Clément, a high-profile journalist for the French national broadcaster France2. One officer is heard telling the group, 'journalists should know better', before putting the crew into the back of a police wagon
