Prosecutors in Hungary have ordered police to investigate a camerawoman caught on video kicking and tripping migrants near the border with Serbia.
Chief Prosecutor Zsolt Kopasz said they suspected the camerawoman, identified in Hungarian media as Petra Laszlo, of disorderly conduct and that authorities in the southern city of Szeged were also considering more serious crimes in the case.
After several videos surfaced showing Laszlo kicking a young man and a girl, as well as sticking her leg out to trip a man running past with a young boy in his arms, she was dismissed from her job at N1TV, an internet channel associated with Hungary's far-right Jobbik party.
The migrants were running from police to avoid being fingerprinted.
