Iranís Press TV claimed its Damascus correspondent was killed Wednesday by a rebel sniper while reporting on bombings in the Syrian capital. Two car bombs struck the Syrian Armyís command headquarters, setting one of the buildings on fire. Maya Nasser, a 33 -year-old Syrian national, was killed while reporting from the scene, Press TV said. Hussein Murtada Ė Press TVís Damascus bureau chief and head of the Arabic-language Al-Alam TV network Ė was also reportedly injured in the attack.
Nasser never hid his identity, and frequently debated political opponents on his Twitter account. Though he was threatened on the Web more than once, he was remembered as always being fearless about his work.
