France 2 television journalist Gilles Jacquier was killed in the Syrian city of Homs on Wednesday, the first reported instance of a Western journalist being killed in 10 months of Syrian unrest.

AP - French television channel France 2 says one of its journalists has been killed in unknown circumstances in Homs, Syria.

In a statement Wednesday, the channel says the French reporter, Gilles Jacquier, was on an Syrian government-authorized reporting trip to the Arab country at the time of his death. Another member of the reporting team was uninjured.

It was the first known instance of a Western journalist being killed in Syria since uprising against the regime of Bashar Al-Assad erupted 10 months ago. Authorities have denied many efforts by Western journalists to enter the country since then.

The U.N. estimates more than 5,000 people have been killed in the uprising.

A visit supervised by the Syrian authorities

This time, the regime of Bashar al-Assad has decided to organize a visit framed. "Under the leadership of the security services, we paid a visit to some of the city. There are areas where we can move normally and we see women and children in the street," says Jens Franssen.
The group of journalists is divided into two according to the testimony published by the Figaro.fr, Mohammed Ballout, BBC, present in the group. One delegation, "escorted by the Syrian Ministry of Information," consists "of journalists from CNN and CBS and the AFP," while that which was Gilles Jacquier, escorted by a Lebanese nun favorable to the Syrian regime, Sister Mary Agnes, "had in its ranks Gilles Jacquier and another journalist of France 2, five Belgians, two Swiss, two Lebanese and a Syrian journalist."
