Iranian journalist and documentarist Hadi Baghbani has been killed by
foreign-backed Salafi terrorists near the Syrian capital, Damascus.
Baghbani was slain by the members of the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front in a suburb of Damascus on Tuesday.
The Iranian journalist had traveled to Syria to make a documentary about the ongoing crisis in the country.
Iran’s charge d’affaires in Damascus Abbas Golrou confirmed Baghbani’s decease on Wednesday.
It is not the first time that a member of media comes under attack by the foreign-sponsored militants in Syria.
Press TV correspondent Maya Naser was shot and killed by a militant
sniper while reporting live on September 26, 2012. He was being
accompanied by Hossein Mortada, who was also injured in the attack.
