Funeral Planned for Marie Colvin

Services will be held next Monday in Long Island, New York, for slain journalist Marie Colvin, The Times of London correspondent who was killed in Syria last month. Colvin, 56, died along with French photographer Remi Ochlik as the two were covering the unfolding violence in the embattled city of Homs on Feb. 22. A wake will be held for Colvin, a longtime war reporter, on Saturday and Sunday before a funeral Mass on Monday, Mar. 12, at St. Dominic Roman Catholic Church in Oyster Bay. Colvin’s death highlighted the worsening situation in Homs, which continues to fuel a heated debate on how Western nations should respond to the situation in Syria.
