Polanski arrest 'is surprising'


The film director Roman Polanski has been arrested and detained in Switzerland at the request of prosecutors in Los Angeles who want him to be extradited.

He fled the United States in 1978 before he could be sentenced for having sex with a 13 year-old girl.

Jeff Berg, Roman Polanski's agent, discusses the reaction to Mr Polanski's arrest.
