Fox News international correspondent Benjamin Hall lost part of his leg after coming under an attack in Ukraine that killed his cameraman Pierre Zakrzewski and Ukrainian journalist Oleksandra Kurshynova, Ukrainian authorities said Tuesday.

“The truth is the target. Russian troops fired at Fox News camera crew near Kyiv. Cameraman Pierre Zakrevsky and producer Oleksandra Kurshynova were killed. Journalist Benjamin Hall survived, but lost part of his leg,” Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense said on Twitter.

The detail about Hall’s injuries comes a day after Fox News confirmed Hall had been hospitalized after the vehicle he was traveling in with colleagues was attacked by Russian forces.

Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense said that while Hall survived, “doctors had to amputate” the lower part of his leg.

The news comes following the report that acclaimed documentary filmmaker and journalist Brent Renaud was also killed while working by Russian soldiers in Ukraine.
