Camerawoman Who Tripped Refugee To Sue Victim

A Hungarian camerawoman who was filmed tripping up a refugee who was carrying a child says she now plans to sue him.

Petra Laszlo was fired by broadcaster N1TV after the footage emerged in September, and she faces a criminal trial in Hungary.

She has told a Russian newspaper that she plans to file two lawsuits when her trial is over.

The first will be to sue the refugee - Osama Abdul Mohsen - for allegedly changing his testimony to police, and Facebook for allegedly refusing to remove threatening groups on the site.

She said: "(Mr Mohsen) changed his testimony, because he initially blamed the police.

"My husband wants to prove my innocence. For him, it is now a matter of honour."

The incident took place on 8 September near the Hungarian border village of Roszke, when migrants and refugees from Syria crossed a police cordon as they attempted to travel through Hungary and into Western Europe.

A video taken by another journalist captured the moment Laszlo tripped Mr Mohsen, who was carrying his young son in his arms.

The video also appears to show her kicking two others.

Laszlo told the newspaper that she may move to Russia after he trial is over.

She said: "We consider Russia and we think that we will begin to learn Russian.

"For us it is important to leave Hungary. We will decide after the trial."
