The veteran Sunday Times correspondent Marie Colvin and the French photographer Remi Ochlik have been killed in the Syrian city of Homs when an artillery shell hit the house in which they were staying. Two other foreign reporters as well as seven activists from the ravaged Bab al-Amr neighbourhood were also wounded on Wednesday in the deadliest attack on western media since the Syrian uprising began almost one year ago. At least three Syrian activists were also killed, all of whom had played prominent roles in chronicling the regime's assault Homs over the past four months. One of those killed was the video blogger, Rami al-Sayed, also known as Syria Pioneer, who had uploaded to the internet at least 200 videos of death and destruction in his neighbourhood.
