Two Syrian journalists have been killed in the capital, according to reports on Sunday from Syrian state news agency SANA and Al Arabiya.

SANA said its reporter, Ali Abbas, was killed at his residence in the Jdaidet Artouz area. The report blamed an “armed terrorist group” – the regime’s catch-all term for its opponents – and gave no further details.

Al Arabiya said that Bara’a Yusuf al-Bushi, a Syrian national and army defector who provided information to the station and several international news organizations, was killed in a bomb attack while covering a story in al-Tal, a suburb on the northern edge of Damascus.

Bushi, 24, originally from Hama declared his defection late May to work as a field journalist.
