Journalists’ Hotel Attacked in Iraq
Monday, October 24, 2005
"BAGHDAD, Iraq — Three massive vehicle bombs exploded Monday near the Palestine Hotel (search), home to many Western journalists, killing at least 20 people. Dramatic TV pictures showed one of the bombers driving a cement truck through the concrete blast walls that guard the hotel, then blowing up his vehicle.
An AP photographer at a checkpoint at the northwest corner of the hotel said at least three fellow photographers from other media were injured and taken away by ambulance. Three APTN personnel inside the hotel suffered minor injuries. The AP counted six wounded inside the hotel, which was last hit in an insurgent rocket attack on Oct. 7, 2004."
