The Syrian TV channel Addounia.tv released footage on Wednesday claiming to show the aftermath of a grenade attack in Homs that killed French journalist Gilles Jacquier and injured several others. France-2 Television cameraman and award-winning journalist Jacquier was killed during a government-authorized tour of Syria's restive city.
The Associated Press reports on the attack:
According to a reporter who was on the media trip, the group was hit by several grenades. As many as six Syrian civilians also were killed, but the figure could not be confirmed, activists said. [...] The circumstances of Wednesday's violence were unclear, but reporter Jens Franssen said he was among about 15 journalists who were taken on a tour of the city. "At some point, three or four (grenade) shells hit, very close to us," he told the Belgian VRT network.
