WASHINGTON, D.C: The Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad targeted and killed US reporter Marie Colvin in Feb. 2012 to stop her from covering government atrocities, according to a lawsuit filed in US court on Saturday. The Syrian military intercepted Colvin’s communications and unleashed a barrage of rocket fire on her position in the besieged city of Homs, according to documents filed in US district court in Washington. Colvin, then reporting for the London Sunday Times, was killed with French photographer Remi Ochlik.
