You're reading: Missing Syrian journalist believed killed

BEIRUT — A pro-government Syrian TV station says one of its cameramen who was kidnapped three days ago is believed to have been killed.

The station said gunmen kidnapped the cameraman Friday along with three other employees of the pro-regime Al-Ikhbariya TV.

A video surfaced online Monday, showing the three surviving members of the team. They said they were being held by rebel forces, who were treating them well.

A man who identified himself as a rebel spokesman also appeared in the video, saying the cameraman was killed in government shelling. The general manager of Al-Ikhbariya TV said they believe he is dead.

It was impossible to independently verify the events shown in the video. In June, gunmen raided Al-Ikhbariya’s headquarters, killing seven employees.
