A video profile of the french journalist Gilles Jacquier, who was killed today while covering a pro-government rally in Syria. Jacqueir was one of many journalists in a pack being led by government representatives, and they were allegedly interviewing people when mortar shells began to fall around them. The majority ran into a nearby house. Jacquier didn’t make it. This video is in French, so we don’t know what they’re saying. If anyone speaks French, feel free to reblog with a quick one-line translation so we can get to know a bit more about him.
