|Iranian journalist killed in Syria||
TEHRAN – An Iranian journalist has been killed by Salafi terrorists near the Syrian capital, Damascus.
Hadi Baghbani was a documentary filmmaker who had traveled to the war-hit country to make a documentary about the Syrian crisis but was slain by the Al-Nusra Front Takfiri terrorists Tuesday night.
Syria has been experiencing deadly unrests for more than two years. Scores of people have been killed and thousands have been displaced as a result of the clashes between foreign-backed rebels and government forces.
Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Araqchi condemned the incident on Wednesday and called on concerned international organizations to pursue the case and fulfill their responsibility to safeguard media officials and journalists.
He added that the countries that fund armed Syrian groups and encourage them to kill Syrian people and foreign nationals are responsible for the death of the Iranian journalist.
He also offered condolences to Baghbani’s family and Iranian media people.
