Violence Claims Two More Journalists in Syria

Two journalists were killed Feb. 22 when Syrian forces shelled the city of Homs.

Marie Colvin was an American war correspondent, and Remi Ochlik was a French photojournalist.

This particular report comes from MSNBC, but news outlets across the world began reporting their deaths early this morning.

SPJ’s International Journalism Committee expresses its condolences to Colvin’s and Ochlik’s families and colleagues.

    The bombings in Homs killed three journalists this week. The third was Rami al-Sayed, a videographer who died Tuesday. The Western press has been too focused on Colvin, not focused enough on the many others who have died covering this conflict.

    Thank you for the update and the link, Julia. I learned of Rami’s death later in the day but was only able to update it on our Twitter feed, @SPJ_IJC, at the time. I appreciate your help in filling in the gaps concerning this tragedy.
