Just hours after appearing on CNN’s "AC360" to talk about the dangerous situation in Syria, Sunday Times reporter Marie Colvin was killed Tuesday, reports TVNewser.com.

The Long Island native had appeared on CNN telling the story of a little boy who had been killed in Syria, one of many deaths she witnessed while working in that part of the world. French photographer Remi Ochlik was also killed Tuesday in the region.

“Syria is quickly becoming one of the most dangerous assignments for foreign journalists, in some respects even more dangerous than Iraq and Afghanistan were,” the story reports.

Here’s a video of Colvin’s final report on CNN:

  1. Marie was a very brave woman (more brave than I, a veteran). I suspect and hope we will see a movie about her life in the next few years.
