CBS lead TV news hounds with a dozen wins at the 34th annual News and Documentary Emmy Awards, presented Tuesday night at Lincoln Center’s Frederick P. Rose Hall.

Half of CBS’ wins came for “60 Minutes” segments, including two for its “Killing Bin Laden” report and two for the “Joy in the Congo” report. The “Killing Bin Laden” seg  earned the best interview award for CBS News frontman Scott Pelley.

“The CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley” scored three trophies, including best coverage of a breaking story in regularly scheduled newscast for the “Fight for Idlib” report on the civil war in Syria.

BBC World News America took the honor for continuing coverage of a news story for its coverage of the Syrian strife. And the same issue earned PBS’ “Frontline” the award for coverage of a breaking story in a newsmag.
