Two Western journalists have been killed in the Syrian city of Homs when shells hit the building they were staying in, opposition activists say.

They have been named as Marie Colvin, the highly respected Sunday Times reporter, and Remi Ochlik, an award-winning French photographer.

Several other people were reportedly killed when the shell hit the makeshift media centre in the Baba Amr district.
