British photographer Paul Conroy, who was wounded in an attack in Syria that left two other journalists dead last week, has been smuggled out of the country and is now safe in Lebanon, activist Wissam Tarif said Tuesday.
There is no word on the fate of wounded French journalist Edith Bouvier, or of the bodies of Marie Colvin and Remi Ochlik, who were killed in Homs.
Syrian activists "suffered and risked their lives" over the course of six nights to smuggle Conroy to a safe house in Lebanon, said Tarif, of the activist network Avaaz.
"Syrian activists wanted to help their friends who have been so bravely telling the story of the carnage in Homs," he said.
An additional 40 wounded people were smuggled out of the Baba Amr neighborhood of Homs, he said.
Colvin and Ochlik, both award-winning journalists, were killed on Wednesday.FULL STORY
