3 journalists for Hezbollah TV killed in Syria

(BEIRUT) — Hezbollah-owned Al-Manar TV says three of its journalists have been killed after they came under attack in the Syrian town of Maaloula.

The station says the three were filming in the historic Christian town Monday after it was seized by the Syrian army when the crew came after fire.

The TV said “armed gunmen” opened fire on the crew, using a term often employed by Syrian authorities to refer to rebels fighting to topple President Bashar Assad.
