RIP: Two weeks ago, Rémi Ochlik took home a prestigious World Press Photo prize for his courageous documentation of the Battle for Libya. This morning, while bearing witness to the horrors of everyday life in the besieged Syrian city of Homs, the acclaimed French photojournalist was killed.
He was 28.
The Syrian Army rocket attack that reportedly targeted the makeshift press center where Ochlik was located also claimed the life of American war reporter Marie Colvin — the only journalist reporting on behalf of a British newspaper (The Sunday Times) from inside Homs.
At least 80 others were also killed in rocket and bomb attacks throughout the day.
Hundreds of civilians are believed to have been killed since the Syrian regime’s shelling campaign began 19 days ago.
In her final report from Homs, recorded mere hours before her death, Colvin told CNN’s Anderson that the Syrian Army was “simply shelling a city of cold, starving civilians.”
