Injured Syria Journo Asks for Evacuation

French journalist Edith Bouvier, who was wounded in the same attack that killed Marie Colvin and Rémi Ochlik, on Thursday requested evacuation from Syria to receive a life-saving operation. In a video posted online by a opposition activist, Bouvier said that Syrian doctors are trying to treat her but that she needs an “urgent operation,” and asks to be evacuated to Lebanon. In a separate video, the British photographer Paul Conroy, who was also injured in the attack, said he is being taken care of by the medical staff of the Free Syrian Army. He said he is “absolutely OK” despite having three large wounds on his leg. French President Nicolas Sarkozy called the attack on the journalists “murder,” while some intelligence has suggested that the Syrian Army targeted their location.
