Camerawoman fired in migrant trip row

(REUTERS/SOCIAL MEDIA WEBSITE) – A Hungarian camerawoman was reportedly fired from her job on Tuesday (September 8) amid allegations that she tripped up refugees as they fled from police in Hungary.

A migrant carrying a child was photographed falling after apparently tripping on the camerawoman while trying to escape from a collection point in Roszke village.

Hungary’s N1TV, who she worked for, later issued a statement condemning the woman’s alleged behaviour.

Tens of thousands of migrants, many of them refugees from Syria’s civil war, have been pouring into Hungary, an eastern outpost of Europe’s passport-free ‘Schengen area’, seeing it as a springboard to wealthier western Europe, above all Germany.
