Documentary on war correspondent Marie Colvin claims she died in ‘deliberate attack’ on journalists by Assad regime
“Marie Colvin was one of the UK’s most respected war reporters, fearlessly chronicling lives of ordinary people caught up in some of the worst conflicts of our times. The American-born British journalist was killed covering the siege of Homs with photojournalist Paul Conroy in the early days of Syria’s civil war. Her death made headlines around the world, and many said it was a deliberate attack on international journalists by the Assad regime.
Colvin’s extraordinary life, and the circumstances surrounding her death, are the subject of a new documentary, Under the Wire, based on Conroy’s book.”
