Far-right extremist in Brussels attacks Antena 3 reporter on live TV

A NEWS reporter from Spain's third channel, Antena 3 was attacked by one of a group of far-right extremists in Brussels yesterday (Sunday) whilst covering a peaceful gathering in homage to the victims of the DAESH bomb blasts.

Marta Sasot (pictured) was outside the stock exchange centre in the Belgian capital, where the ground is covered in flowers and candles, whilst cameraman Jordi Ballabriga focused on the far-right group, whose members were attempting to stir up trouble among the silent protesters.

One of them wrenched Sra Sasot's microphone from her hand, which she managed to grab back from him with some difficulty.

The extremist demonstrator then ripped the sponge head from the top of the microphone, but again, the reporter pulled the device off him.

A passing woman intervened to separate the youth from Sra Sasot, at which point the extremist protester hurled the sponge at the reporter's head.

Throughout the entire scene, which lasted a few seconds and was broadcast live, Marta Sasot continued to report on the action in the square without flinching or altering her tone.

Even though she had to continue speaking with the sponge cap on her microphone missing, she did not hesitate for a single moment.

Once the Antena 3 news presenter in the studio, Matías Prats, cut the connection with Brussels, he said: “Great and very brave work, colleague.”

Marta Sasot was surprised later to see she had been the subject of a flood of Twitter comments praising her for continuing through the intimidating interruption, and hoping she had recovered from the ordeal.

I'm amazed – I've read all the tweets and can only say thank you to everyone for your encouragement, and that I'm grateful to have the great cameraman Jordi Ballabriga by my side,” she wrote, whilst still in Brussels.
