A TV camerawoman appears to have tripped a migrant man and his son as they were trying to escape from a collection point in Hungary’s Roszke village.
As seen on the video published on Twitter, the man had a hard fall with his child as the camerawoman ‘tripped’ him. The Hungarian police officers were stopping migrants from escaping from the collection centre at Roszke.
The camerawoman, working for a Hungarian TV news channel was reportedly fired after the video went viral.
As European leaders debated how to share responsibility for the more than 340,000 people from the Middle East, Africa and Asia who are already seeking refuge, Germany promised to spend billions of euros in extra aid for those already there and those yet to arrive. France weighed whether increased airstrikes against Islamic State militants would help to stem the flow of those fleeing Syria.
But the Hungarian prime minister scoffed at a proposed quota system for refugees in the 28-member European Union, saying it wouldn’t work unless Europe first secured its borders.
