journalist Marie Colvin, killed last week by Syrian forces in Homs, has been buried in a graveyard close to where she died, a Syrian activist claimed in an online video uploaded to Youtube on Thursday, according to The Telegraph
The activist says in the video that a lack of electricity in Homs made Colvin's burial necessary as her body could no longer be refrigerated.The body seen in the video is too badly burned to be positively identified as Colvin.
"Marie Colvin was martyred in Baba Amr because she was sending a heavenly message, a humanitarian message. She was telling the truth about what is happening in Baba Amr. May got be merciful to you, Marie, as we bury you in this garden," The Telegraph
quoted the activist as saying.
