Ranthambhore National Park, India - News photographers say bodyguards for Russell Brand assaulted them as they shot pictures of the British comedian touring a national park in India.

The photographers say that they were in a jeep behind Brand's on Friday when two bodyguards jumped out of their own jeep and began punching them and their driver.

The photographers say bodyguards snatched the keys to the photographers' car, stranding them in Ranthambhore tiger sanctuary. They say Brand watched.

The four photographers work for The Associated Press, Reuters, Agence France-Presse and the Hindustan Times newspaper.

Brand and pop singer Perry are in India for their wedding, planned for Saturday.
