I Just Pray Our Uzbekistan Military Base Hasn't Been Damaged
More news from Uzbekistan:
"It was a massacre," said a 31-year-old cobbler who witnessed the killing outside School No. 15 from a side-street. "This sickening smell of blood, smashed brains, guts, and blood, blood, everywhere. I could not put my feet on a dry spot.
"I saw soldiers killing several wounded with single shots to the head after asking 'are there any wounded around'," he said...
He said he saw about 500 corpses in comments that could not be verified but were corroborated by others.
Sure, this looks bad. But there's NO WAY we could have seen this coming.Posted at May 16, 2005 06:22 PM | TrackBack
