Argentine journalist Giro Moura posted a video clip of a mobile phone theft from an Argentine reporter while covering live in the Sarandi area on the outskirts of the capital, Buenos Aires.
“They stole the cell phone directly from colleague Diego de Marco, a lot of anger,” Mora said in a tweet, commenting on the video, which received a great deal of interaction on social platforms, and received more than 800,000 views on Twitter.

The clip showed Marco – who works as a reporter for the local Channel Nine – preparing to start a live broadcast on the air, to be surprised at a young man running next to him and grabbing his phone and then escaping through a narrow corridor between the houses.
“Wait, my phone was stolen,” Marco shouted surprised, and tried to chase the young man, but that attempt – according to local press sources – was not effective.
