The reporter Diana Magnay was reporting live from Israel as a group of Israeli’s cheered each bomb that was landing on the people of Gaza. She later tweeted, “Israelis on hill above Sderot cheer as bombs land on #gaza; threaten to ‘destroy our car if I say a word wrong’. Scum,”
It seems she was made to delete this tweet later and it seems this was a reaction to being threatened by the Israelis. “After being threatened and harassed before and during a liveshot, Diana reacted angrily on Twitter,” a CNN spokeswoman told the Huffington Post in a statement.
Magnay has since been reassigned to Moscow.
