Press TV reporter Serena Shim, died under mysterious circumstances in Turkey.

According to Press TV, "Shim, an American citizen of Lebanese origin, was killed on Sunday as she was 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 Turkish city of Suruç when the car carrying her collided with a heavy vehicle. The identity and whereabouts of the truck driver remain unknown."

Shabir Hassan Ali, a political analyst for Press TV, is quoted as saying that, “The reality is that our sister Serena was assassinated by Erdogan’s regime.”

As reported by Press TV, "Shim 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."

Turkey faces allegations that it secretely supports the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). Serena Shim had been reporting on those concerns.
