Terror Attack in Al Hussein - Photos following attack
Photos taken on Feb. 22 - around 11pm .
Police had cordoned-off the area around the Al-Hussein Mosque immediately after the explosion. A handful of journalists & photographers managed to get in shortly after the attack, while many others (including myself) were prevented from doing so.
I managed to get into the scene of the crime nearly four hours after the explosion.
Security personnel were wrapping up their police tape while sniffer dogs were being walked around the area.
It clearly seems like an explosive device was placed underneath this marble/concrete bench by the garden. There were still blood stains on the sidewalk by the demolished bench when I got there.
One French teenage girl has been killed & nearly two dozens wounded. Why?
This is a such a cowardly and incomprehensible act of terror
