War correspondent Marie Colvin is being laid to rest in the Long Island community of her childhood where she first decided to become a reporter.
Syrian rebels spirited a British photographer who had been trapped in the opposition stronghold of Homs out of the country Tuesday after he was trapped for days under fierce government shelling that killed 13 of those trying to save him, an activist group said.

"It's a complete and utter lie that they are only going after terrorists," she added. "There are no military targets here."
