Syrian TV news contributor undeterred by explosions live on air


An analyst on Syrian state television continued to give an interview despite two explosions going off in the background while he was live on air.

The pro-regime analyst was talking about rebel bombings on Sunday night when the blasts detonated behind him.

After the first bomb went off, the anchor asked the analyst if he was okay.

"We are good, we are resilient," said the analyst, pictured on the right in video footage of the incident. "Go ahead with your questions."

After the second blast went off, the anchor is heard congratulating the analyst on surviving.

The Syrian state news agency SANA reported that two car bombs had caused light damage to their television headquarters in central Damascus.
