Among the dead was a local cameraman who died filming a Syrian tank advancing on Qusayr
The New York Times Lens Blog profiles Robert King, a photographer for Polaris, who snuck into Syria and has been shooting in Qusayr near the Lebanese border.

The longer [King] stayed, he said, the more frustrated he became that the Syria story seemed to be dropping out of the news media. Some of his clients, he said, complained about the bloodiness of his images: a young girl with organs spilling from an abdominal wound, a toddler whose hand had been reduced to a limp, red mass.
“How do I eliminate the blood?” he said. “It’s on my feet. It’s on my hands. It’s on my clothes.”
