The dispatched journalists – reporter Johan Fredriksson and photographer Daniel Zdolsek – were working in the Zaporizhia area when their car was hit by the missile at lunchtime.

Both people escaped without injuries, but their local producer and two police officers were slightly injured in the attack.

The robot is reported to have been released from a drone, and slammed into the car's trunk. No person is reported to have been in the car at the time of the incident.

"This was very close to the eye. This is what it looks like in Ukraine for millions of people right now, constant danger to life, says Johan Fredriksson to TV4 News.

Both the car and the camera equipment were destroyed in the attack.

"We are relieved that everyone survived without physical injuries," says Fredrick Malmberg, news director at TV4 News.
