Last week, we saluted war correspondent Marie Colvin and photojournalist Rémi Ochlik, both of whom were killed on Feb. 22 in one of the increasingly forceful and frequent government strikes on the besieged Syrian city of Homs. Their dedication to the people of Syria and to their work cost them their lives, but their deaths underscored the urgency of the ongoing tragedy in that country.
