French journalist killed in Syria
France 2 TV says 1 of its journalists has been killed in unknown circumstances in Homs, Syria
By The Associated Press

PARIS (AP) ' French television channel France 2 says one of its journalists has been killed in unknown circumstances in Homs, Syria.

In a statement Wednesday, the channel says the French reporter, Gilles Jacquier, was on an Syrian government-authorized reporting trip to the Arab country at the time of his death. Another member of the reporting team was uninjured.

It was the first known instance of a Western journalist being killed in Syria since uprising against the regime of Bashar Al-Assad erupted 10 months ago. Authorities have denied many efforts by Western journalists to enter the country since then.



The U.N. estimates more than 5,000 people have been killed in the uprising.
