London - UPI

Veteran reporter Marie Colvin, who was killed in Syria in February, was honored Wednesday at a memorial service in London. Lyse Doucet of the BBC called Colvin \"the bravest of the brave,\" The Guardian reported. She addressed a crowd of colleagues, friends and family members at St. Martin-in-the-Fields Church. \"Marie never thought of gender when it came to the way she reported and the way she traveled,\" Doucet said. \"She worked with the best of the veterans in this business, the most talented and the young, both women and men.\" Colvin, 56, spent years covering conflicts around the world as a correspondent for The Sunday Times. In 1999, she helped save the lives of 1,500 women and children in East Timor and in 2001 she was blinded in the left eye after being wounded in Sri Lanka. She joined United Press International as a police reporter in New York in 1979 and became Paris bureau chief in 1984. She moved to the Times in 1985. While Doucet and others hailed Colvin\'s courage, John Witherow, the Times editor, said she had a stubborn streak. He said a manager, determined to get expense reports, went to her house and became so frustrated he began yelling \"I know you\'re in there\" through the mail slot when Colvin ignored him.
