    Press TV correspondent Serena Shim killed near the Turkey-Syria border - YouTube

    Press TV’s correspondent in Turkey, Serena Shim, has been killed in a suspicious car accident near the Turkey-Syria border.

    Shim was killed on Sunday as she was on a working mission in Turkey to cover the ongoing war in the strategic Syrian town of Kobani.

    She was going back to her hotel from a report scene in the city of Suruç in Turkey's Urfa Province when their car collided with a heavy vehicle. The identity and whereabouts of the truck driver remain unknown.

    Shim, an American citizen of Lebanese origin, covered reports for Press TV in Lebanon, Iraq, and Ukraine.

    On Friday, she told Press TV that the Turkish intelligence agency had accused her of spying probably due to some of the stories she has covered about Turkey’s stance on the ISIL terrorists in Kobani and its surroundings, adding that she feared being arrested.

    Shim said she was among the few journalists obtaining stories of militants infiltrating into Syria through the Turkish border, adding that she had received images from militants crossing the Turkish border into Syria in World Food Organization and other NGOs’ trucks.

    Shim flatly rejected accusations against her, saying she was “surprised” at this accusation “because I have nothing to hide and I have never done anything aside my job.”


    Kobani and its surroundings have been under attack since mid-September, with the ISIL militants capturing dozens of nearby Kurdish villages.

    Turkey has been accused of backing ISIL militants in Syria.

    She was killed because of the photos she had. She proved that Turkish regime helps the insurgents like ISIS in Syria and she covered many other stories. That is why she was killed.

    And not only that, the previous mayor of the town (Suruç) which she was in, Salih Tekinalp, was also assassinated along with his son yesterday (by the MIT: Turkish Intelligence Agency). These people knew too much. And they tried to protect those who knew too much. Maybe they were going to speak about Serena's martyrdom as well.
