Not long after dark tonight there were quite a few extended bursts of automatic gunfire! It sounded quite near so I’m hoping it was from some wedding celebration in one of the nearby social buildings. We’re terribly complacent about it I suppose but although this practice has recently been made illegal it still carries on and of course there are still accidents from stray bullets reported in the English newspaper ‘Arab News’. Not too long ago some bullets landed in one of the gardens and on the street nearby. Luckily no one was hit but that’s the problem it doesn’t seem to enter the shooters mind that ‘what goes up must come down’!
