On Tuesday, hundreds of refugees ran from the police as they broke out of a registration camp in Hungary, the BBC reports.
A video published on Twitter shows how journalists are filming the scene as police officers are chasing refugees and trying to contain them.
Toward the end of the video, a camerawoman filming the scene is seen tripping a refugee carrying a child in his arms as he is running away from the police:

A different video shows the same camerawoman, supposedly a reporter for Hungary’s N1 TV channel, kicking two different refugees as they run from the police:

The videos have already generated many angry responses on social media. The TV channel has reportedly fired the reporter, releasing a statement on Facebook calling her behavior unacceptable and saying that the case was now closed.
Hungary has had difficulty dealing with the number of refugees coming into the country. Last week, thousands of people were sleeping outside the Budapest train station. Tensions have flared as government officials have been refusing to let the refugees onto trains to Germany and Austria before registering them.
The Hungarian prime minister, Viktor Orban, has been one of the most vocal anti-refugee politicians in Europe, stating last month that the refugees were threatening Europe’s existence. Orban also announced Tuesday that he wanted to speed up the construction of the 13-foot-high fence on the 109-mile border with Serbia.
