A major norwegian newspaper just published a picture on their front page of someone being dragged out of there.

I am not going to link it because nobody should have to see that. Especially not anybody who knew him.

Every picture that could mean someone is identified is usually blurred out before being published, but not today apparently. Seeing the picture made me feel sick and disgusted with how the media operates.

I did not know Sean but as an former EVE player I have heard of him.

My thoughts go out to his family and loved ones, and to those of you that knew him. I am truly sorry for your loss. :(

RIP Sean

Reports are that was the ambassador, who is now also reported as having been killed in the attack.

Comparing the stock photo of the ambassador with the picture of the man being evacuated from the burning building suggests that it was indeed Christopher Stevens, who later died of smoke inhalation.

You think the photo is of someone trying to help him? Hmmm. Could be. Hadn't seen it that way at first.

I think so, yes. They really don't look like an angry chanting mob to me. Besides, it's also a good default assumption before jumping to any conclusions.
