The family of an American journalist killed in Syria in 2012 has sued the Syrian government in U.S. federal court. Sunday Times reporter Marie Colvin died after a direct strike on a building where she was staying with other journalists. Her family says the attack deliberately targeted Colvin hours after she had broadcast live from the building on CNN and spoke of indiscriminate shelling by the Assad government in the opposition-held city of Homs. The Committee to Protect Journalists says 96 journalists have been killed in Syria since 2011. The majority are Syrian.
