Hungarian Camerawoman Apologizes for Kicking, Tripping Refugees

She wrote an open letter saying she "panicked."

— -- The Hungarian camerawoman who was caught on video kicking and tripping refugees has written an open letter apologizing for her "panicked" actions.

"As I watch the footage now, it's like I'm not watching myself. I honestly regret what I have done and take responsibility for it," she wrote.

She was fired from N1TV, a far right-leaning Hungarian Internet news channel, after release of the footage showing her treatment of refugees and migrants.

Laszlo was questioned by police for disorderly conduct and was released, but the investigation is ongoing, according to The Associated Press.

"It's not easy to make a good decision when you're in a panic.

"I'm just a woman, now unemployed mother of small children, who made a bad decision in a panic situation," she added.
