Oprah's guards scuffle with media

Oprah Winfrey's bodyguards were detained by police following a scuffle with local TV journalists in India, it has been reported.

The American talk-show host had been travelling with both American and Indian bodyguards while visiting the Hindu pilgrimage town of Mathura, about 90 miles south of Delhi.

Press Trust of India said police detained three of the guards after local journalists claimed their video equipment had been damaged in a brawl. No one was reported hurt, and there was no indication that the American bodyguards were involved.

The three guards were released after apologising in a letter to the journalists, it was claimed.

It is Oprah's first trip to India, where she has been filming her new show Oprah's Next Chapter.

Earlier this week, she delighted Mumbai locals by wearing a bright orange sari while meeting with Bollywood stars including Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai at a private party.

She is due to attend the Jaipur Literature Festival, which begins on Friday January 20.
