Moscow - The Russian Defence Ministry says three Russian journalists have been injured while traveling to front-line positions in Syria.

The ministry said on Tuesday that the three journalists on the way to the village of Al-Dagmashliya in the government-controlled province of Latakia were slightly injured when a missile landed near their car. The ministry says the journalists were taken to a hospital at the Russian military base.
