We were working at “Panorama" (editorial office), collecting information and watching the telephone and the telefax. There was already a feeling of uneasiness around, but there wasn't any time to think about that because we continued to work as long as the paratroopers didn't break into the building. The faces of the paratroopers who broke into our office were awful. Their eyes were terrifying - you couldn't understand where they were looking and what they saw. It was horrible. The worst thing was that you didn't know what they were going to do. What are they going to do to the people? Savages... They overturned everything in the offices - they toppled the tables and drawers and smashed the phones.

It's a good thing that the film cameras didn't end up in the hands of the para¬troopers. The last filming group went to the city at one o'clock at night and took the last cameras. When they returned, we „had already been taken over".
