BEIRUT: Military Prosecutor Judge Saqr Saqr charged Thursday members of the Syrian army in the April killing of a Lebanese journalist.

Ali Shaaban, 30, a cameraman for Al-Jadeed TV was shot and killed on April 9 while on an assignment in the northern area of Wadi Khaled near the border with Syria.

The television station blamed the Syrian Army for the killing.

Shaaban was accompanied by two other colleagues – reporter Hussein Khreiss and cameraman Abed al-Azim Khayyat – when their vehicle came under a volley of machine gunfire.

Saqr also charged members of the Syrian army of attempting to murder Khreiss and Khayyat.

The Lebanese prosecutor referred the case to Military Investigative Judge Riad Abu Ghida.
