Gunmen have this morning (Wednesday) stormed the headquarters of a Syrian pro-government news channel, planting explosives and killing three employees, state media has reported.
Syria's Sana news service said the attack on Ikhbariya TV took place in the town of Drousha, about 15 miles south of the capital Damascus, this morning.
An employee at the station said that the gunmen stormed two of the station's buildings, detained some of the guards then blew up parts of it with explosives.
The unnamed employee claimed the gunmen blindfolded him then drove him away about 200 yards where he heard the explosion.
The Ikhbariya TV channel is privately-owned but strongly supports President Bashar Assad's regime.
