Cameraman wins award for filming violent Thai protests

This year's Rory Peck News Award - which pays tribute to the freelance camera operators who risk their lives to film in the world's most dangerous places - has been given to an American living in the usually peaceful city of Bangkok.

In the confrontation between Thai government forces and Red Shirt protesters earlier this year, Roger Arnold took unique images from both sides of the front line.
