Footage released by OneNews purports to show the bodies of Western journalists buried under rubble following an attack in Syria. American war reporter Marie Colvin and French photojournalist Remi Ochlik were killed Wednesday morning during an intense barrage on Homs.

In her final report for the Sunday Times, Marie Colvin painted a bleak picture of the situation in Homs, including a shortage of food and supplies.

According to the activist in the video below, Le Figaro reporter Edith Bouvier and Sunday Times photographer Paul Conroy were also wounded. In a video released Thursday, the two Western journalists appealed for help.

Over 5,400 people have been killed in Syria since the uprising began last March, according to UN estimates. Wednesday's attack claimed at least another 74 lives.
