Journalist Marie Colvin Dies in Syria, Hours After Appearing on CNN

Two foreign journalists were killed in Syria yesterday, 28 year-old French photographer Remi Ochlik and Sunday Times reporter Marie Colvin.

Colvin–a Long Island native–was killed just hours after she appeared on CNN’s “AC360″ last night, talking about the death of a little boy, one of many deaths she has witnessed in the country. As we have reported, Syria is quickly becoming one of the most dangerous assignments for foreign journalists, in some respects even more dangerous than Iraq and Afghanistan were.

Colvin’s final report for CNN is below.
