Syria opposition artist pays ultimate price

Artist Moheed Zuhori used pens, crayons and humour to denounce the government of President Bashar al-Assad.

    Since the Syrian uprising began, people from all walks of life have taken up the fight on both sides. Artist Moheed Zuhori used pens, crayons and whatever he could find, to support the anti-government movement.

    Zuhori suffered a shrapnel wound to the head and later died in a hospital in Lebanon.

    The artist and his drawings were filmed by Robert King a few weeks before his death.

    Al Jazeera's Will Jordan reports.
