The French government spokeswoman has identified two Western reporters killed in Syria as French photojournalist Remi Ochlik and American Marie Colvin.

The spokeswoman, Valerie Pecresse, provided details of the killing to reporters after Syrian government forces shelled the restive central city of Homs.

According to CNN, Colvin worked for the The Sunday Times of London and was the only British newspaper journalist inside the embattled Homs neighborhood of Baba Amr. She is an American.

Ochlik was killed in a bombing. He was 28.

Colvin had been on air with CNN on Tuesday night, "recalling how she watched a young boy die after his house was struck by shelling," CNN reported.

Colvin was an experienced foreign correspondent who had covered many conflicts including those last year in Libya. She said this was the worst because of the amount of shelling in Homs.

"There's a lot of snipers on the high builds surrounding the neighborhood. I can sort of figure out where a sniper is but you can't figure out where a shell is going to land," she said.
