Reuters photographer Goran Tomasevic has filed a report on the Reuters Photographers blog describing the moment he photographed Free Syrian Army fighters under attack from snipper fire which killed one man – then they were hit by a near-direct shot from a tank shell.

‘One moment, I heard two incoming shots. I was already aiming my camera on these two Syrian rebels. I heard the scream and saw one of them get shot. He was still alive as I was shooting but dying as he was carried away….. A tank fired a couple of shells onto the top of the building and rubble fell down around us……’
