  1. small report by MM @ 25.Nov.2006 22:08

    Three people death, I hearded the shots at 22.09, although far away; drive-by shooting. PFP house searches. Militaries are comming in now.
    Also reports of armed gangs patrolling the city.
    I had to take cover 5 times in a small room in the hotel from tear gas, while PFP and APPO where exchanging eachother in the streets.
    Surreal; a very few cars enter on their normal Saterday evening; going to the bars. I’m hungry, but the door is double locked. If I leave, I can’t enter till morning, the hotel owener says.
