Pro-Assad civilans' civilian rally target of mortar attacks: 8 Killed including a foreign journalist

If it wasn't for a dead foreign journalist, pro-government Syrian civilians would have continued dying without any mention in mainstream media! (Wounded France2 caméraman Christophe Kenck said by phone that the pro-government rally was targeted by 4 mortar attacks one of which was aimed at an empty school)
"(CNN) -- A French journalist died Wednesday in a mortar strike on a pro-government rally in Homs, ....The violence comes as international journalists and Arab League monitors viewed the tumult rippling across restive cities.
