Aleppo: Sniper kills French journalist

A Belgian-born French journalist, Yves Debay, has died from sniper fire in north Syria's Aleppo, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Friday.

"He was killed on one of Aleppo's fronts" on Thursday, said the Aleppo Media Centre, adding that he was "shot by a regime sniper."

Anti-regime activists in Aleppo posted online photographs of Debay's body and of his press card.
