Scenes from the heinous crime committed by the hand of treachery, in the neighborhood of Akramah at Homs.
Journalists together with people of Akramah, were attacked by a mortarsplinter from hidden terrorists while showing the terrorist crimes to the journalists.
A preview of Lizzie Phelan and Mostafa Afzalzadeh's detailed interview with Sister Agnes-Mariam - a leading figure investigating the truth of events on the ground in Syria. Sister Mariam was falsely accused by some mainstream media of deliberately putting western journalists in harms way in Homs on 11/01/2011. Later some Arab media farcically reported that she had been kidnapped, this interview is of course testimony that such reports were lies.
The full interview, soon to be published explains in detail why media reports, including those by journalists that were there at the time, that the Syrian government was responsible for the attack that killed France 2 journalist Gilles Jacquier and 8 Syrian civilians goes against all available evidence.
The interview also presents evidence that the residents of Homs are on victims of aggression by armed gangs on a daily basis.

A French journalist has been killed in Syria. French President Nicolas Sarkozy says the reporter was just doing his job - telling the truth about what is happening in the troubled Middle Eastern country. Here's that story.
A French journalist was among several people killed in Syria's central city of Homs on Wednesday, the first Western reporter to have died in 10 months of unrest in the country.
French President Nicolas Sarkozy says that the journalist, Gilles Jacquier, was just doing his job: reporting on the "violent events in Syria as a result of the unacceptable repression of the regime against the population."
[Nicolas Sarkozy, French President]:
"This reminds us all of the difficulties of the journalists' profession, the dangers which they risk and and the same time the importance of what they do, in regimes which are as they are, in situations which are as they are, having courageous men and women to tell the truth of what is happening."
Jacquier was a veteran war correspondent who had previously reported from Iraq, Afghanistan and Kosovo. He had been invited to Syria by the government, and was in Homs with other journalists reporting on the situation in the city.
Syria barred most foreign media from the country soon after demonstrations began in March, but following the Arab League monitoring mission last month, more journalists have been admitted.
A Belgian journalist in Homs, who asked not to be named, said a group of reporters had been visiting a pro-Assad neighborhood of the city when several grenades or mortar rounds landed.
The death is likely to up the rhetoric between Paris and Damascus.
France has led Western efforts to try to force Assad to end the crackdown and has suggested a need to set up zones to protect civilians -- the first proposal by a major Western power for outside intervention on the ground.
