BEIRUT, LEBANON - Syria's state-run news agency says gunmen have attacked the headquarters of a pro-government TV station, killing three employees.
SANA says the attack on Ikhbariya TV in the town of Drousha, about 14 miles south of the capital Damascus, occurred early Wednesday.
An employee at the station said that the gunmen stormed two of the station's buildings, detained some of the guards then blew up parts of it with explosives.
The employee, who did not give his name for fear of repercussions, said the gunmen blindfolded him then drove him away about 200 meters (yards) where he heard the explosion.
"I was terrified," the man said by telephone.
Ikhbariya is privately-owned but strongly supports President Bashar Assad's regime.
