Police are seen closing in on the migrants who were attempting to escape the violence brought on by the Islamic State and other terrorist organizations. The video has gone viral.

A lot of question about my video with the camerawoman: no! I don't know her and no: she's not my colleague.— Stephan Richter (@RichterSteph) September 8, 2015
The Guardian news website has identified the camera woman as Petra László of N1TV, the Hungarian nationalist TV network. László reportedly also tripped two children who were trying to escape. According to The Guardian, László was dismissed from her job due to “unacceptable behavior”.
Hundreds of people have left the town of Roeszke for Budapest. They are only a portion of the thousands in Euorpe fleeing out of fear for their lives.
