On the night of January 12 I was at the television tower. When the paratroopers arrived we were surrounding the central entrance of the tower. We stood there until the paratroopers began to shoot at the windows and at the ground by the people's feet. They beat one guy with the butt of a gun and kicked him until he fell down. On the way to my car, I saw what they had done to people's cars. It was a terrible sight. My car was also damaged by the hands of the paratroopers: the back window was broken, the back door was bent in, and the rear-view mirror was broken off.
