Remi Ochlik (Associated Press Photo)
PARIS (AP) - Remi Ochlik, a rising star of French photojournalism who covered riots in Haiti and the upheaval sweeping across the Arab world was killed Wednesday in a shelling attack in Syria.
French officials said the 28-year-old native of eastern France who founded the photo agency IP3 Press was killed along with U.S. war reporter Marie Colvin after Syrian forces besieged the central city of Homs.
Ochlik (Osh-LEEK)'s photo last year from Ras Lanouf in Libya of an opposition fighter on a mound under a rebellion flag against smoky skies won him first prize in the 2012 World Press Photo contest for general news.
IP3's website said Ochlik also covered rebellions in Tunisia and Egypt last year and his work has featured in publications including Paris Match and Time magazines as well as The Wall Street Journal.
