Im fine, but I was in the Internet caf and every wall and window shook. People poured out of hotels. Too much to do now, but Im fine.

A window in my kitchen was broken.The bomb went off right in front of the al-Karma hotel, which makes the black jokes obvious. 5 people injured. Two critically, including a boy 10-11 years old. Later, Chris sent on a slew of pictures from the scene. Here's one.THERE'S MORE: Chris' heart-breaking full report is now up.
