TV Camerawoman Fired For Kicking Fleeing Migrants

A Hungarian TV camerawoman was fired Tuesday after footage appeared to show her kicking migrants, including children, as they ran from a police line during disturbances at Roszke, southern Hungary.

The woman, later named as Petra Laszlo, can be seen tripping a man sprinting with a child in his arms, and kicking another running child in two separate incidents.

Footage of the incident from the camerawoman’s perspective later appeared on N1TV, an internet-based TV station close to Hungary’s far-right Jobbik party.

“An N1TV colleague today behaved in an unacceptable way at the Roszke collection point,” said a statement from N1TV’s editor-in-chief Szabolcs Kisberk posted on the channel’s Facebook page later.
