Some people have shouted “why don’t you go?”, to which she replied that she was doing her job. The journalist has received a liquid in her head and in her hand, which she has cleaned with a handkerchief ready to appear live and direct in front of the camera.

Telecinco has published the news in its website with the following note: “In the images taken you can see the pressure felt by the journalist, who was working and covering the information, information to which all Spaniards are entitled, which is included in international law”.
