Bomb Blast in Khan el Khalili

Seems there was 1 or 2 bomb blasts in Khan el Khalili a couple of hours ago. This is an area that I frequent quite regularly. I've taken all my guests to this area for shopping and sight seeing and I visit it myself at least twice or thrice a month. I was right here 2 nights ago on Friday evening.

After the blasts in Bombay and attacks on women in my home town this is another incident which is so close to me and makes me question the world that I live in.

The people who carry out these attacks anywhere in the world are cowards. They attack those who are unprepared/unaware and in most cases, completely innocent.

Reports on various channels are conflicting. Here are links to some of them in random order:
BBC
Al Jazeera
Sky News
Yahoo News
Googe News

I hope you, your family and your friends are ok. Stay safe and pray for sanity in our world, so we may leave a safer world for the next generation.

I went back up to the souq on Wednesday night and while it was quiet, there were still some shoppers around...and seats free at Fishawi. There is a stronger police presence as well. So I say support those in the market, as they're looking at the loss of their livelihoods. What else can you do? Avoid such places? Keep changing your life until it is not your life anymore?
