"Insurgents in the Syrian capital Damascus have attacked Press TV staff and killed one of our reporters," anchor Bardia Honardar said on air.
Maya Naser, Press TV's correspondent in Damascus, was shot in the neck and Hussein Murtada, the channel's Damascus bureau chief, was injured in the attack while the two were covering twin bombings on Wednesday that targeted one of Syria's top military command buildings in the capital, according to reports.
Hussein Murtada, who is also bureau chief for Iran's Arabic-language Al-Alam, was injured earlier this month while traveling with Syrian government forces when armed men ambushed them, Al-Alam reported.
Iran has supported Assad, its sole Arab ally, as he attempts to suppress the uprising.
