"France 2 television has just learned with a great deal of sorrow the death of reporter Gilles Jacquier in Homs," France 2 said, adding it did not have details of how he had died. It said Jacquier had been invited to Syria by the government.

Syrian state television said eight other people had also been killed in the incident, which it blamed on a "terrorist group". A Belgian reporter who was there told Reuters several mortar rounds or grenades had landed in the area. "There was a lot of chaos, blood, hysteria," he said.

Syria barred most foreign media soon after anti-Assad protests began in March, but more journalists have been admitted since the Arab League sent monitors to check if the authorities were complying with an Arab plan to halt the bloodshed.
