TV cameraman shot in the back, police blame “stray bullet”

first_img Reporters Without Borders has learned that Dunya News TV cameraman Fayyaz was shot in the back today while covering a meeting of the Punjab provincial assembly in Lahore. It was unclear who fired the shot but fellow journalists said they thought it was a targeted attack linked to his coverage of criticism of an important local party called Nawaz.Fayyaz was rushed to hospital after the shooting and was said to be out of danger.Reporters Without Borders urges the police to carry out a serious investigation with the aim of quickly identifying those responsible for the shooting. It also calls on Punjab law minister Rana Sanaullah Khan to keep his promise to cooperate with the media and to ensure that the police do not rule out the possibility that today’s shooting was targeted. Fayyaz was shot when he and other journalists went to interview members of the provincial assembly in a tent that had been specially erected for the occasion.The police said Fayyaz appeared to have been hit by a “stray bullet.” But, in the absence of any other shooting in the area, this was strongly disputed by members of the Punjab Union of Journalists (PUJ), who said they would boycott the assembly until an independent investigation into the shooting was carried out.

Coastal Storm Set To Bring Heavy Rain, Flooding

first_imgIt was almost a year ago that we were dealing with a major coastal storm. The infamous Winter Storm “Jonas”, as it was called, dumped heavy snow then heavy rain along the coast with strong gusty winds and significant flooding. Now another coastal storm is set to bring another dose of heavy rain, gusty winds and flooding for late Sunday into Monday. Only this time, you don’t have to worry about the snow.Rain will arrive late Sunday as a low pressure system to our south will begin moving offshore. The difference between the High Pressure to our north and Low Pressure to our south will cause a tight gradient for a period of time over our area allowing strong onshore winds to increase rapidly late Sunday night into Monday.Northeast winds 20-30 mph gusting to 50 -60mph especially Monday morning.This will cause seas to build 7-12 feet with breakers along the coast around 5-8 feet. Water will begin to push into the bays and cause flooding during times of high tide. Fortunately, were are in a period of low astronomical tides so only minor flooding is expected at this time. However, if the timing of the storm surge occurs closer to high tide, moderate flooding is possible.Ocean City High TidesMonday- 4:39AM & 5:00PMFlooding will occur as back bays fill up around 2 hours after high tide which will cause street flooding during Monday morning commute and also Monday evening.Heavy rainfall will also add to the flooding concerns as 1″-2″ of rain is expected.The wind and seas will decrease later in the day on Monday and especially Tuesday as the coastal storm lifts north and away from the coast.Rain will end Tuesday morning as the storm pulls away. Temperatures will continue to stay on the mild side with highs topping out around 50 degrees as we move into next week.last_img read more
