Journalist killed in south Syria fighting - media

A Syrian journalist working with a pro-regime television network has been killed in the southern province of Quneitra, where government forces are battling rebels, state media said.

The journalist, Mustafa Salama, was killed in Quneitra province after "being injured by shelling from terrorist groups in the Masshara area", SANA reported.

The Sama station he worked for described him as a "hero" and said he died "while covering the advance of the Syrian Arab Army on the Quneitra front".

Government forces have been bombarding rebel-held territory in the region, retaking the area of Masshara bordering the Israeli-annexed Golan Heights.
