French prosecutors have opened a war crime investigation into AFP reporter Arman Soldin's death in Ukraine, AFP reports on Twitter.

The journalist's death will be classified as a war crime. The probe will be handled by a unit specialising in crimes against humanity.

As IMI reported, Arman Soldin was killed by "Grad" fire near Chasiv Yar (Donetsk oblast), according to his colleagues who witnessed the incident. The attack took place on the outskirts of the town near Bakhmut.

Arman Soldin and his colleagues from the AFP came under fire while they were with a group of Ukrainian soldiers. Soldin, 32, was killed when a rocket struck close to where he was lying. The rest of the team was uninjured.
