VILLACOUBLAY, France - Two French journalists who were smuggled out of Syria have arrived in France.
Edith Bouvier, who was injured, and William Daniels were caught up in a Syrian government siege of a rebel-held neighbourhood in the city of Homs.
President Nicolas Sarkozy greeted them on their arrival Friday at the military airport of Villacoublay west of Paris.
Bouvier was injured during a rocket attack that killed two Western journalists — American reporter Marie Colvin and Remi Ochlik — and wounded a British photographer, Paul Conroy. Daniels was not hurt in the attack.
Late Thursday, French officials said Bouvier and Daniels had arrived safely in Lebanon.
