Mihye Kim, a reporter for the South Korean television network KBS, was beaten by a gang while she was reporting on riots in the northern Parisian suburb of Aubervilliers on November 5, Agence France-Presse reported. Four or five young men surrounded Kim and her cameraman and tried to rob them; one man kicked the reporter, rendering her unconscious. Police officers came to the defense of the journalists when they heard their cries.
