Oct. 14 - Sunday's two suicide car bombs in Damascus are seen live on air on an Iraqi TV channel as the presenter conducts an interview with a Syrian political analyst. Nathan Frandino reports.
An explosion in Damascus captured live on Iraqi television during an interview with this Syrian political analyst. The startled analyst was, of course, discussing the violence from the ongoing civil war when the blast happened. Moments later, the analyst confirmed his safety before asking the anchor to finish his question. Syrian television later showed two vehicles burning in the streets as armed men surrounded the area. The explosions damaged the government television and radio building where the Iraqi television interview was taking place. No casualties were reported.
