    Only one injury. Not much of a bomb. I trust this is not more fake news. Sports professionals are often involved in fake stories – as casual witnesses, and so on, usually not identified, but used as they are meida trained like journalists.

      Game is postponed. Like it or not, a bomb in Champions League football will generate headlines where beautiful babies in Yemen won’t.
      Farage told me! I was listening to him live on LBC…. in Turkey! Gotta laugh…. or you cry.

    Fake news and jumping on the terror bandwagon. The bus looks pretty much untouched.

    Local reports at the time were that the bus was targeted by 3 large firecrackers.
