Freelance Reporter Shot And Wounded In Tripoli
Witnesses report having seen sniper fire coming from the roof of the Marriott Hotel across from the Corinthia.
The Palestine Civil Rights Campaign-Lebanon confirms reports that Franklin Lamb was shot at approximately 11:45 a.m. on Sunday August 21 in Tripoli, Libya outside of the Corinthia Hotel where he has been staying.
Franklin had just returned from a 90 minute bicycle tour of central Tripoli and was walking past the Hotel swimming pool when he was hit in his right leg. Witnesses report having seen sniper fire coming from the roof of the Marriott Hotel across from the Corinthia.
Franklin is basicly OK. The bullet has been removed and he is resting comfortably and wishes that no one be concerned because he will be fine. Internet has been cut in Libya and events inside Tripoli are unclear. The PCRC will advise if events warrant.
Editor's Note: Franklin Lamb also wrote some freelance reports from Libya for The Black Star News.
