Roszke: When the video of a Hungarian TV camerawoman Petra Lazlo tripping a Syrian refugee carrying a child while fleeing from the police at the border village of Roszke surfaced, it sent shockwaves across the world.
German reporter Stephan Richter shared the moment on his Twitter account when Lazlo stuck her leg out as the refugee carrying his son tried to escape the police and ran past her, causing them both to fall on the ground.

The father-son duo were among hundreds of refugees fleeing war-torn Syria at Roszke immigrant camp on the Hungary-Serbia border during a police crackdown.
Shortly after the video went viral, she was fired from her job by local TV station N1TV, which is run by the anti-immigration far-Right Jobbik party.
Meanwhile, Conflict News shared another footage of the Lazlo kicking young refugees on Twitter.
