The Spanish daily El Mundo said Wednesday evening Feb. 29, as his special envoy Javier Espinosa, previously blocked in Homs with French journalists Edith Bouvier and William Daniels, had arrived in Lebanon after being exfiltrated. His arrival was confirmed by Abu Raed World, director of the Syrian Relief Committee, usually in charge of transport, inside Lebanon, wounded from Syria, in coordination with the ASL.
The official said Edith Bouvier who works for Le Figaro, severely wounded in the leg, would not leave Baba Amro with the help of the Syrian Army free, but would be supported by the Embassy of France in Damascus. Members of local coordinating committees reported on Wednesday night, in a message, that the reporter "refuses to leave only Baba Amro, without the Syrian civilians injured and asked the French ambassador to come and do whatever is his power "and claims to have experienced" the happiest days of (his) life with the wounded Syrian ".
The authenticity of these statements could not be a diplomatic source confirmed Thursday morning. The head of the International Figaro, Philippe Gélie, ensured his side in the world do not believe it. "The direct and indirect sources indicate a completely different mindset, which is confirmed by the journalist of El Mundo," said Mr. Gélie, who was unable to contact Edith Bouvier recent hours.
