The incident was filmed while the police were clearing climate protestors from outside the Federal Palace.

The film shows the man running towards the officer with an arm stretched out, seemingly wanted to talk. The officer pushed him away and he fell.

Social media commentators are outraged.

But Bern cantonal police say the video only shows a snapshot of the wider incident – and points out anyone directly involved is entitled to make a complaint.
