The Revolution will not be televised

The Revolution will not be televised... There will be no highlights on the eleven o'clocknews and no pictures of hairy armed women liberationists and Jackie Onassis blowing her nose.

The revolution will not be televised - And sometimes, even today's reality isn't. Spot the coverage of the story below in al-bayan. Wila kilma ya 3ami.

January 18 - At least two people have died in a fire that broke out in a building under construction in the Gulf emirate of Dubai.

Two workers building the 37-storey apartment tower were killed and 57 others injured, said Maj. Rashid al-Falasi of the Dubai Police.

"Some of the workers were trying to climb down on cables. One guy in red was trying to climb down and then he just fell. It was horrible," said Louise Olson, 25, from Denmark, who watched the scene from her whirlpool bath in a high-rise that faces the burning tower.
