@habib_b I can tell you what they did. Just took a bunch of photos. (also got the mandatory arm attack by one of the builders) — Oliver Holmes (@olireports) May 15, 2013
@habib_b Look at photos on previous tweets. Saw 3 bulldozers working to remove ruins. Took a picture from the side and a builder grabbed me. — Oliver Holmes (@olireports) May 15, 2013
@habib_b he radioed other men but managed to get away. — Oliver Holmes (@olireports) May 15, 2013
