Very sad, indeed. This woman was a fantastic reporter. I too hope this helps solidify standing against Assad, and not listening to the sad excuses of Syria that it was 'the rebels' fault!'.

Sad death, reporters have been killed in every war. Fortunately there are selfless people still willing to take the risk to bring us reports of the horrors happening. RIP Ms Yamamoto.
