Syrian Activists Claim to Have Buried Colvin in Homs

Syrian activists in the city of Homs said on Thursday they have buried American journalist Marie Colvin, who was killed in a Syrian army shelling last week.

The activists uploaded a video to YouTube, in which they claim to be documenting Colvin’s funeral. The video clip shows a man, whose identity is unknown but who previously appeared in several films from the neighborhood, saying that he is at a cemetery in the neighborhood of Baba Amr, where Colvin was killed.

The man added that opposition activists decided to bury Colvin in Homs because there was no electricity to cool the body and it began to rot.
