Marie Colvin

Sunday Times veteran journalist Marie Colvin’s phone interview with Anderson Cooper at CNN, and her chilling last words, a few hours before she and French photographer Remi Ochlik were killed by Syrian army shells in the city of Homs:

The Syrian army is shelling a city of cold, starving civilians . . . . There are no military targets here . . . . It’s a complete and utter lie that they are only going after terrorists. (via The Telegraph)

The Arab League and others continue to talk while people die. And just as disturbing, there is speculation that their location may have been tracked through their satellite phones. The Electronic Frontier Foundation has a good write-up on the possibility and a warning for journalists in Syria in other high-risk areas. And the providers of the tracking technology? West European and American companies, of course.

Tributes to Colvin have come from around the world, deeply respected by her peers and her readers. Time and again she put herself in the middle of conflict, never as a “war correspondent” but as the one looking for the human side of the story. Kurt Pitzer said it best in his tribute to her in Mother Jones:

Marie yearned for a way to not only document atrocities but to undo them. Although she chose to bear witness as her profession, she would have loved nothing more than to put herself out of business.
