Qatari Authorities Mistake Regional Brazilian Flag For LGBT One, Confiscate Journalist’s Phone

A Brazilian journalist claims his phone was seized after he filmed a man’s negative reaction to the colorful flag of Brazil’s northeastern Pernambuco state. 

According to Victor Pereira, a man wearing a traditional white dress mistook it for the LGBT community's rainbow flag at the Lusail Stadium. 

"Then an officer arrived and tried to intervene. He grabbed the phone from the other guy and ordered me to delete the video,” the journalist reportedly said. Pereira said he obeyed and deleted the clip so that he could get his phone back.
