Colvin's last report: Homs shelling "absolutely horrific"

Two more journalists have been killed in Syria: reporter Marie Colvin of London's Sunday Times and French photographer Rémi Ochlik. They were killed in the shelling of Homs by Syrian government troops, just days after New York Times reporter Anthony Shadid's death covering the Syrian uprising.

Colvin's last report from Homs, where she was the only UK newspaper correspondent on the scene, was a BBC interview the day before she was killed. "I counted 14 shells… I watched a little baby die today. Absolutely horrific. No one here can understand how the international community can let this happen."
