One of the leading Hungarian broadcasters has fired a camerawoman after she was shown tripping a fleeing refugee man who was carrying his young son in his arms. The broadcaster and many Hungarian news outlets have been accused of highly negative coverage of the influx of refugees. The camerawoman has been identified as Petra László of N1TV.
The man can be seen breaking away from a police officer with his child in his arms when László sticks out her leg to trip him.
On its Web site, the TV station posted a statement that read: “Today, a N1TV colleague behaved unacceptably at the Roeszke reception center. The cameraman’s employment was terminated with immediate effect.”
The incident follows tough talk from Prime Minister Viktor Orban in criticizing Germany and other nations for opening up borders to refugees.
