When I was much younger, I had once envision myself to be a journalist. But now I have come to a realisation that I am not cut up for it. I am too thin skinned and get scared easy! But I still admire the journalists who risk their lives to give us an opinion of what happens at various parts of the world.
Here's a report by Frank Gardner, filed one day before he was shot at in Riyadh.
I am beginning to think that it was a hit rather than a random act of violence. I read somewhere that there were 5 cars that surrounded his, not just one. And many do question how is it that the terroritst knew that he and the cameraman will be there. And their unofficial guide, totally unhurt? I guess only Frank can now tell us the true story.
