(AP) A photographer for The New York Times was arrested at the World Trade Center disaster site and charged with criminal trespass, police said.
Edward Keating had no permission to be in the area, and his press card had expired, said Michael O’Looney, deputy police commissioner of public information.
Police said Keating, arrested Friday evening, was seen taking photographs of rescue workers removing victim remains.
Keating had a pass that allowed only rescue workers to be in the area, and authorities were investigating how he obtained it, O’Looney said.
Keating was given a ticket and was released, police said.
Times spokeswoman Catherine Mathis said the matter was being investigated. Keating had been at ground zero on prior occasions.
