A Hungarian camera operator has been filmed kicking and tripping up refugee children, fleeing the police at the country’s southern border with Serbia. In the footage released on social media on Tuesday, the N1TV channel camerawoman, identified as Petra Laszlo, can be seen tripping up an asylum seeker carrying a child and kicking a running child in a separate incident.

The channel announced they fired Laszlo after the footage went viral, stating that she had “behaved in an unacceptable way” at the border. "The camerawoman's employment contract has been terminated with immediate effect as of today, we consider the matter closed.”

The incident took place as scores of asylum seekers breached a police line at the Serbian border where thousands of refugees have been passing through for the past month.
