March 20 (Aljazeera): A Switzerland-based press freedom group says six journalists have been killed and eight others have been wounded during the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

“The journalists were killed under various circumstances, from shrapnel after a rocket attack to a bullet wound,” the Press Emblem Campaign (PEC) said.

Three of them were killed while covering battles close to Kyiv, near the city of Irpin, it said.

PEC also said Russian forces in southern Ukraine have kidnapped two journalists.
