Edith Bouvier returns to France from Syria

Two French journalists who were caught up in shelling and smuggled out of Homs into Lebanon have been flown back to a military airport outside Paris.

Edith Bouvier and William Daniels were met on arrival by President Nicolas Sarkozy.

Ms Bouvier was badly injured in the bombardment of a makeshift media centre last week, in which two other journalists were killed.

The BBC's Nick Gowing and David Chazan reported on their return.
