Sure took a while. The #Douma #Syria attack occurred on April 7. That’s 14 days ago. Journalists managed to get in without being shot at. But for some reason the @OPCW received special treatment... twitter.com/gebeilym/statu…
Plus a special Changing of the guard at BP, gun salutes in Hyde Park and a concert tonight...It’s good to be the Queen!!! 🥂🎂 twitter.com/toweroflondon/…
Today at 1pm there will be a 62-round gun salute to mark HM The Queen's birthday 🎂 As well as the usual 21 rounds for a royal anniversary, an extra 20 are fired as the Tower is a royal palace and fortress, and a further 21 for the City of London. pic.twitter.com/ETRfVBDH4C— The Tower of London (@TowerOfLondon) April 21, 2018
Strong @UN statement here. So far 35 #Gazans killed by #Israel forces in recent weeks. Unjustified excessive use of force against protesters needs to stop. reuters.com/article/us-isr… twitter.com/nmladenov/stat…
🔴 It is OUTRAGEOUS to shoot at children! How does the killing of a child in #Gaza today help #peace? It doesn’t! It fuels anger and breeds more killing. #Children must be protected from #violence, not exposed to it, not killed! This tragic incident must be investigated.— Nickolay E.
