Two foreign journalists wounded in Syria have been smuggled out of the country.

Edith Bouvier, a reporter on French paper Le Figaro, and British photographer Paul Conroy with the Sunday Times,were injured last Wednesday. They were wounded in a government attack on a building where they were staying in the besieged city of Homs.

Both were secretly taken to neighbouring Lebanon, according to Syrian opposition sources.

The same attack claimed the lives of two other foreign journalists – American Marie Colvin and French photographer Remi Ochlik.

Homs has been the focus of nearly four weeks of daily attacks, with activists reporting 68 deaths on Monday.
