Violence from the Arab Spring protests claimed two more lives in the press corps on Wednesday, as renowned journalist Marie Colvin and photojournalist Remi Ochlik were killed when the building they were in was hit by shells in Syria.

The Arab Spring uprisings across across the Middle East and North Africa have taken a heavy toll on journalists, with at least 15 lives being claimed in 2011, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists.
