According to the online daily, the channel aired the video with the following description:
“The video was taken on New Year’s Eve in Cologne, and it was recently uploaded to the largest video sharing site. Dozens of migrants surround a blonde woman, who has no chance of escaping. Her shouts and attempts to push the migrant men away failed, as they did not let her go. The video might have been taken with a phone by one of the migrants, exposing the incident.”
M1 has not yet responded to 444.huʼs allegations on the matter.
