The Palestine Hotel in Baghdad
was attacked by suicide bombers today. 3 vehicles, in a coordinated attack attempted to blow up the building. Speculation by one Iraqi minister was that they wanted to take foreign journalists as hostages. Another said that was only speculation, and since there were no gunmen following the car and truck bombers in, it probably wasn't so.
I'm wondering, if there were any Spanish journalists in the hotel will the courts in Spain issue warrants for the arrest of the leaders of the insurgency?
The other question is, now that they appear to be targets, will this change the tone of the some of the newsies over there?
