Wife of British photographer seeks action to 'get him out'

The wife of one of the wounded Western journalists, trapped in the Syrian city of Homs, says she wants the British Embassy to "forget the protocol" and get him out.

Paul Conroy, who is a Sunday Times photographer, was injured by shelling which killed his colleague, Marie Colvin, on Wednesday. A video of him being cared for by the Free Syrian Army was later posted online.

Mr Conroy's wife, Kate, has told BBC News why he refused to leave with a small group that were evacuated on Friday.
