Violence Claims Two More Journalists in Syria
By Butler Cain
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.
