interesting to see mass media coverage of a bomb attack on a non-European country... [View all]

raise your hand if you think:
cnn will have non-stop coverage.
facebook users will change their profile picture to a Tunisian flag
news media will have a "Tunisian attack" on the bottom of their screen along with their non-stop coverage.


yes, I know this is "only" 12 people and I know they are security guards, so perhaps not considered 'civilians'

but the main difference is that in America, some lives are worth more than others.
Arab life is worth less.
plain and simple

maybe I should start a mantra "arab lives matter"

"Apparent suicide attack on Tunisian presidential guard bus kills 12"

"A bomb exploded on a bus packed with Tunisian presidential guards in the capital Tunis on Tuesday, killing at least 12 people in an attack one source said was probably the work of a suicide bomber.

Ambulances rushed wounded from the scene and security forces closed off streets around Mohamed V Avenue, one of the main streets in Tunis, before the president declared a curfew in the city and imposed a state of emergency nationwide.

It was the third major attack in Tunisia this year, after an Islamist militant killed 38 foreigners at a beach hotel in the resort of Sousse in June, and gunmen killed 21 tourists at the Bardo Museum in Tunis in March. Islamic State claimed both those attacks.
