A reporter in South Africa was mugged while he was preparing for a live shot in Johannesburg. The incident was caught on camera.

The reporter has been identified by BBC as Vuyo Mvoko of SABC News. He was waiting for a producer to cue him when two men approached his crew.

"We're being mugged," Mvoko said near the end of the video.

Mvoko told BBC he was confused when the men approached. He said one of the men had a gun and the other demanded his mobile phone. The two attackers got away with a number of other phones and a laptop computer.

Mvoko said after the men got what they wanted, they disappeared. He stayed calm through the incident, saying it was "all in a day's work."
