Syrian reporter, soldiers killed in Daraa blast

A Syrian reporter and two Syrian soldiers were killed on Wednesday by an explosive device in the country's southern Deraa governorate, Syrian state media reported.

An earlier statement said that a cameraman from Syrian state television had also been killed but an update by Syrian state media said he was alive after having been rescued by local villagers.

Firas al-Ahmad, a reporter for Damascus-based outlet Sama TV, was killed alongside the two Syrian troops by a roadside bomb as they were heading back from al-Chiyah in Deraa, the update said.

Since 2011, Syria has been gripped by a foreign-backed insurgency that gave rise to Daesh and other terrorist groups in the Arab country.
