US-born journalist Marie Colvin (L) and French photojournalist Remi Ochlik were killed in Homs on Wednesday
A combination of two pictures made on February 22, 2012 shows US-born journalist Marie Colvin (L) in a recent picture released by the Sunday Times, and freelance French photojournalist Remi Ochlik in an AFP picture taken on February 2005. The Syrian regime was not responsible for the deaths of the two Western journalists who "sneaked" into the country, the foreign ministry said on Thursday.
