British and French authorities are coordinating with the Lebanese Red Cross to transfer four wounded foreigners from Syria to Lebanon, An Nahar daily reported Thursday.
The newspaper said the injured include three British nationals and a French.
Efforts are underway to transfer them to Hotel Dieu Hospital in Beirut after they suffered different injuries in the violent crackdown by Syrian authorities on protestors, it added.
Some of them are in critical condition.
Two Western journalists were among dozens killed by Syrian forces Wednesday, fuelling Western outrage over the regime's assault of the rebel city of Homs amid calls for a humanitarian truce.
Veteran American journalist Marie Colvin, who reported for London's Sunday Times, and French freelance photojournalist Remi Ochlik were killed in the latest onslaught of the district.
