Esmeralda Labye, a reporter for Belgium's RTBF television network, was live on-camera Thursday reporting a story on the 22 sexual assaults that occurred on the first night of the Cologne Carnival in Germany, a popular week-long street fair. While delivering her report, a man walked up from behind and pretended to hump her; later, two men made faces at her, and one then reportedly grabbed Labye's breast, according to a later news brief from Labye.
