BUDAPEST A camerawoman for a private television channel in Hungary was fired late on Tuesday after videos of her kicking and tripping up migrants fleeing police, including a man carrying a child, spread in the media and on the internet.

In separate videos, the woman, who was not named by the channel, is seen kicking a girl and tripping up the man and child as hundreds of migrants, many of them Syrian refugees, broke away from police on Hungary's southern border with Serbia.
