    Seriously, if someone wants to gather intelligence on a location they would do that with a hidden camera. Anyway all you can see from the outside are the wall and the gates!!

    Our security is trying to show off nabbing an innocent photographer after being derided for years for not nabbing actual criminals and murderers. Scores of journalists and political leaders, murdered, abducted, beaten up or disappeared, during the reign of the previous governments, remain unresolved.
