If you\'re curious about what he was covering, it concerns the February 7th battle between US and Kurdish forces and Syrian Regime and Russian Mercenary forces. A large column of regime troops including tanks and artillery approached a US supported forward base, fired on it and... well. According to Reuters:

\"The U.S. military has said that in its effort to repel the attack on Feb. 7, U.S. forces on the ground called in coalition strikes for more than three hours, involving F-15E fighter jets, MQ-9 drones, B-52 bombers, AC-130 gunships and AH-64 Apache helicopters.\" Yeah. It was revealed afterwards the attacking force included a large number of Russian mercenaries from the Wagner Group, a private military contractor with ties to \"Putin\'s Chef\" Yevgeniy Prigozhin. Russian reporter, Maxim Borodin, has been reporting on the incident. He also took a five storey header off his balcony, and died in hospital on Sunday. His friends deny he was suicidal. ------- Sources ------- Russian journalist who covered Wagner Group mercenary deaths in Syria dies after falling from balcony http://uk.businessinsider.com/maxim-borodin-death-balcony-fall-russian-journalist-covered-wagner-group-2018-4 U.S. still unsure who directed Syria attack, despite Russian dead https://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-mideast-crisis-syria-pentagon/u-s-still-unsure-who-directed-syria-attack-despite-russian-dead-idUKKCN1G2051 What we know about the shadowy Russian mercenary firm behind an attack on U.S. troops in Syria https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/worldviews/wp/2018/02/23/what-we-know-about-the-shadowy-russian-mercenary-firm-behind-the-attack-on-u-s-troops-in-syria/ ----------- Also worth reading, the reported phone intercepts of Russian mercenaries after the battle: https://www.polygraph.info/a/us-wagner-russia-syria-scores-killed/29044339.html
