A court ruled the war reporter’s death in 2012 was murder. In 2019, the risks to my profession have not gone away
The judge was clear: it was murder. The Sunday Times correspondent Marie Colvin, killed while reporting from the besieged Syrian enclave of Baba Amr in February 2012, was not the victim of a tragic accident.
“She was specifically targeted because of her profession, for the purpose of silencing those reporting on the growing opposition movement in the country,” wrote Judge Amy Berman Jackson of the US District Court in Washington DC.
