French Photojournalist Remi Ochlik Killed In Syria

Misrata, Libya, 2011.

 

“Rémi Ochlik, the young photographer who died Wednesday morning in Syria, was the second photographer in a close group of friends to die covering conflicts in the Middle East in just over a year.

Mr. Ochlik, 28, was killed early Wednesday in Syria as forces loyal to President Bashar al-Assad pursued a deadly bombardment of the central city of Homs, according to activists and officials. Marie Colvin, an American journalist working for The Sunday Times of London, was killed along with Mr. Ochlik, a French photographer. The two were among 27 killed in Syria on Wednesday, according to a report. Two other photographers, William Daniels and Paul Conroy, were injured, as well as the French freelance journalist Edith Bouvier.
