Journalist Colvin killed trying to retrieve shoes

LONDON (AFP) - American war correspondent Marie Colvin was killed while trying to retrieve her shoes so she could flee an army bombardment in the Syrian city of Homs, her employer The Sunday Times said. Colvin and a group of other journalists had all followed the local custom of removing their footwear before entering a building in the besieged city which was being used as a rebel press centre, it said. The journalists were on the ground floor of the building when the upper floors were hit by rockets, the paper said in the first full account of how the attack happened. Although they were initially unhurt Colvin ran to the hall to get her shoes back from where she had left them.
