An Italian journalist and cameraman reporting from Belgium were harassed by a small group of young men, and part of it was caught on video.

Giovanna Pancheri was reporting on protests in the Molenbeek district of Brussels, a place known for its ties to Islamic terrorism, for Sky TG24 when a man assaulted her camera, the Mirror reported.

The camera is knocked around when suddenly the hoodie-wearing youngster appeared in view staring at the camera.

The man spoke to the reporter and camera operator and refused to leave.

As the crew continued to report, another teen came to try to disrupt the broadcast.

“There was a group of three trying to intimidate us who had nothing better to do,” Pancheri told the audience.

“We had already spoken to them explaining that we were filming a live news report and that I would be the only one on the screen.”

“But while we were filming, one of them approached us, tried to swipe the camera and kicked the cameraman,” she added.
