‘Please Don’t Shoot Sir.’ Journalists face Danger In Covering Fall of Tripoli

A CNN report suggests that a reporter for Al Jazeera may have been shot inside Muammar Qaddafi‘s compound in Tripoli, and footage from CNN seems to underscore how dangerous the situation is, even as rebels control the compound.

CNN’s Sara Sidner appeared live on the channel as celebratory gunshots went up all around her. Sidner was grazed by shells from some of the bullets.

“Please don’t shoot, sir” she said to one of the men firing off rounds.
