She's been identified as camerawoman Petra Lazlo, and she's accused of deliberately tripping a refugee carrying a child along the Hungary-Serbian border. Earlier, she's seen kicking a young girl. Her employer, Hungarian television channel N1TV announced late Tuesday they had fired Lazlo, calling her actions "shocking and unacceptable". Hungary's right-wing government has taken a hard line on migrants --- portraying them as a threat to European prosperity and what it calls "Christian values". N1TV, which is considered right leaning by many in the country, includes in its lineup a weekly show hosted by the leader of the country's conservative, anti-immigration Jobbik party. Lazlo has so far made no public statement.
