Any more on this?

I realise that DXB is not the centre of the universe, but I would have thought that this would be somewhere on the news wires.
Nothing on CNN or BBC, nor SkyNews Dubai Radio not reporting it.

I know they censor stuff here but this would be difficult to hide.

Pls advz

PPRuNe first fro breaking news again - even if bad news?

Hmmmm....would be that be like the Airport construction collapse and Dry Dock Flooding cover ups!

If in this case the 'public' are involved however, they will have a lot more difficulty keeping it from the world media, it seems the dozens of poor old Sub-continent workers killed in the previously mentioned accidents didn't deserve worldly attention.

Next time, try: "I heard there might've been an incident at the Mall of the Emirates where a roof collapsed - does anybody have any info?"

Quote: "Arse". Didn't your mother ever teach you that swearing is the crutch of the conversational cripple? Classy, dude. I don't know how I could possibly come up with a retort to that one.

Got to say Chinny - even after reading the original post - that you should try a little harder to get your facts straight before posting an "apparently loads killed" type of thread

Bad form chinny. "loads killed" A bit premature. Not so cool to read that post when you know the wife and kids are there.

Chinny:

I am with journeyman on this one. Speculating on the body count was somewhat unwise.

Yeah, tell your "Mate" he's a [email protected]!! My wife and kids were also there at the time and I [email protected] myself when I read your post.

Think before typing!!

ppruners

well..... 'apologies' to all who mistook my information-it was not the intention.

i will endeavour to put more emphasis on certain words, so that people dont get misled by what i might say in future.as i said, all i did was say word for word what was said to me by some one who was there.

Spoken like a true journalist.

Journalist quote from eyewitness passenger

"There was a huge explosion and i looked out the window and the wing was on fire. I was sure we were all going to die"

Translation: the engine surged.

A little investigation wouldn't go astray before announcing mass loss of human life over the web.

I think we have consensus on this one - bad rumor - thread closed in an effort to avoid further bad blood.
