Abstract: 

The story of Marie Colvin is one of great courage and profound tragedy. Colvin, an internationally-renowned American journalist, was killed on February 22, 2012 while on assignment for The Sunday Times. Marie was in Homs, Syria, a city under siege, at a makeshift civilian media center that was under attack. Her sister, nephew and nieces are suing the Government of Syria for an intentional and purposeful extrajudicial killing of Ms. Colvin as part of the regime‚Äôs campaign to eradicate journalists reporting on atrocities.
