Newsday photographer Moises Saman - who spent eight days in an Iraqi prison in 2003 - was arrested Sunday in Times Square while covering a protest related to the Republican convention.

"I was photographing a guy getting arrested and somebody grabbed me from the back with a lot of force and made me fly backwards," said the award-wining photographer, who was working at 45th Street and 7th Avenue at about 5 p.m. when the incident occurred. "I turned around and it was a police officer in a white shirt. He just said something like, 'You're arrested, ... I told you to move.' But he (had) never said anything to me."
