Reuters journalist killed in rocket attack on Lebanon

A video journalist has been killed on the Lebanon-Israel border after a rocket hit his crew providing live streaming for the news agency.

The horrific scene played out on a live internet feed – and footage of the moment as been shared on social media. In the disturbing clip, a woman – working for Reuters – can be heard screaming before saying “I can’t feel my legs”.

In a statement, Reuters wrote: “We are deeply saddened to learn that our videographer, Issam Abdallah, has been killed.

“Issam was part of a Reuters crew in southern Lebanon who was providing a live signal.

“Our thoughts are with their families at this terrible time.”

Journalists Thaer Al-Sudani and Maher Nazeh were also injured and are currently receiving medical treatment.

The live feed was terminated on Friday morning when rocket fire struck.

The footage captured a deafening explosion, followed by the woman shouting: “What happened?! What happened?! I can’t feel my legs! I can’t feel my legs!”

A man’s voice can be heard swearing in a state of panic.

The origin of the explosion remains uncertain.
