VIDEO: Camerawoman fired after video shows her kicking and tripping migrants in Hungary

A camerawoman in Hungary has been caught on video tripping and kicking migrants at a reception centre for refugees in Roszke.

Petra Laszlo, was filming for the youtube-based channel, N1TV, at the reception centre in Roszke where she began kicking and tripping the refugees.

As a man carrying a toddler runs by she clearly puts out her leg, causing him to trip and fall to the ground.

In another incident, Laszlo is seen kicking a girl who runs past her. A German journalist filmed her actions and posted the video footage on his twitter account.

Laszlo has since been fired from the N1TV station. 

A statement from the editor of the station, Szabolcs Kisber, posted on N1TV's website read: 'Today, a N1TV colleague behaved unacceptably at the Roszke collection point.' 

'The cameraman's employment was terminated with immediate effect.'
