A FILM crew from Channel Nine’s 60 Minutes program have been attacked in Sweden by a “group of masked men” while filming a story about the European migrant crisis.
The team, which included the Nine Network’s veteran reporter Liz Hayes, were visiting the Stockholm suburb of Rinkeby when a group of young men attacked the film crew and ran over a cameraman’s foot and injured one of their producers.
Swedish media outlet Avpixlats had partnered with 60 Minutes to film the story.
The Nine Network have released a statement today, confirming the incident occurred.
