The bodies of two Western journalists killed in Syria were handed over to the French ambassador and to a Polish diplomat in Damascus on Saturday, an AFP correspondent reported.

Veteran US reporter Marie Colvin of the Sunday Times and French photographer Remi Ochlik were killed in a rocket attack in the rebel Baba Amr neighbourhood of Homs on 22 February.

Their bodies were taken to the French hospital in the Kassah neighbourhood, the AFP correspondent said.

French ambassador Eric Chevallier boarded an ambulance that carried the body of Ochlik while the Polish diplomat went in a separate car behind another ambulance that carried Colvin's body.
