You fire teargas inside, and then you don’t follow up by charging forward. So, what for?

via Echofon

@xtauymatiao … Yes, by actually getting inside the bus. So….

via Echofon in reply to xtauymatiao

@xtauymatiao It probably runs off the bus’ battery power, and picks up over-the-air broadcast.

via Echofon in reply to xtauymatiao

… and BBC and Al Jazeera. So much for international relations.

via Echofon

The situation is live on CNN too.
