Taranto. Reporter and operator of tv show Piazza Pulita assaulted
Alessandra Buccini was documenting the escape from a refugee hotspot in Taranto of a group of minors. At the train station the reporter and the operator who was with her were assaulted by a man, allegedly responsible for trafficking in children, which procured the train tickets for the children and talked to the train manager who did not want to leave with them. When Buccini asked him who he was and why he was interested to young migrants, the man hit the operator warning him not to reply. Finally, he broke his camera.
Here’s the video of the attack aired on May 30 during the TV show Piazza Pulita.
