BipTV journalist faces death threat at demonstration

April 17, 2019

Regional television reporter Lise Nicolle was covering a demonstration at Chateauroux in central France, when she was approached by a protestor. The man threatened to kill the Bip TV journalist, gesturing from 10 centimetres in front of her face and saying that he would slit her throat if she filmed him. Nicolle told France Bleu that she went as white as an angel; she was trembling and could not continue her work.
