After recent violent protests, footage of demonstrators getting dragged away and beaten by what appears to be plain-clothes police officers has been making headlines in Moldova and Romania.
The video, available on youTube, was recorded yesterday by a cameraman and reporter for a Moldovan Internet news portal, jurnaltv.md.
It shows protesters asking the plain-clothes police officers where they have taken their fellow protesters, who had been demonstrating outside a government building.
But at around 2:50 in the video, the police officers start rounding up and dragging away protesters who strayed from the main group.
