Prime Minister Scott Morrison calls for investigation after 7NEWS reporter and cameraman assaulted in US riots

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has demanded an investigation into the assault of an Australian journalist and cameraman at the hands of US Police.

7NEWS US Correspondent Amelia Brace and cameraman Tim Myers were assaulted during their coverage of riots near the White House in Washington on Tuesday morning AEST.

While live on air, Myers was struck in the chest by a riot shield and Brace was clubbed with a police baton.
Glad there's video, though will it make a difference?

The cops know they're being filmed and they don't care. A few have been fired, but the rampant violence against peaceful protesters and members of the media is still happening unchecked.
