I follow one of the Fox reporters David MacDougall and right now he is in Pakistan. So far today there have been 3 separate attacks carried out in the Peshawar district, and I received his updates via Twitter.
PAKISTAN: Death tolls vary in double Peshawar bomb attack. Local media says 2 dead, 60 wounded. My colleague is hearing 16 dead. Confusion.There is more. For those with Twitter accounts you can follow David here.
PAKISTAN: 90 minutes after double bomb blasts in Peshawar market, local TV still showing a lot of chaos at scene, fires burning, smoke.
PAKISTAN: Ominous text. "God saved [name of cameraman] in the cross fire" Grateful my colleague is alive to bring video of Peshawar bombings
PAKISTAN: Local TV now reporting gunmen taken positions in a building, possible stand-off with police. Bring on those RPGs now boys!
PAKISTAN: New reports from Peshawar - another explosion? An attack on a checkpoint? No law & order
PAKISTAN: Latest attack is on a police post in Kohat Road in Peshawar. Explosion, gunfire reported from teams on the ground.
PAKISTAN: Local TV reports gunfire at main Peshawar hospital. My guy outside building says there WAS shooting, but all quiet now.
His last response to me was telling also.
@Just_A_Grunt I know, a series of attacks, right at the end of the work day on Thursday. Will any of it make TV news in the US? Let me know!
