"The LSE said Panorama reporter John Sweeney posed as one of its professors on a study trip in order to film undercover in the country. The union's Alex Peters-Day said the BBC used students "as a human shield". Sweeney said the students were told a journalist was with them but that the LSE was not as it was not an LSE trip."
