Re: Journalist was amoung of AK47 armed group?

Nope, you're distorting the truth. There were both cameras with telescopic lenses and AK47 or AKM assault rifles -- even Assange acknowledges this. There is also a "long item" that Assange's cronies dismiss as possibly a tripod (because press photographers in war zones always carry tripods, nice backdrops, rolls of seamless paper, have makeup artists, etc), but which the military describe as an RPG.

Two RPGs were found with the bodies.
