Bearing witness to Syrian atrocities: British Photographer Paul Conroy

Photographer wounded in the attack that killed Marie Colvin testifies to what he saw

After a dangerous journey out of Homs - one in which a number of his Syrian guides were killed trying to get him to safety - British photographer Paul Conroy has finally made it back to Britain.

He has given a couple of television interviews.  This one is at the BBC.

"I think its important to bear witness," he says.  "It's a slaughterhouse."

I urge you to watch.
