An official Rio 2016 bus carrying journalists was hit by an object that shattered windows Tuesday night, leaving two people injured by flying glass.
Passengers threw themselves to the floor after something hit the vehicle and blew out two windows.

One US journalist later stated her belief that the bus came under fire from a handgun.

However, the news agency Agencia Brasil reported that other passengers believe the vehicle was hit by rocks.

    Sorry to hear that . Hope they are doing fine. However what happened to the Olympics tickets for Dominica?. I can’t believe that the man in charge used this as an opportunity to make money for himself. These men are all scoundres. I heard this man disgrace PM at a private function and call him little boy in pampers..He was so upset skerrit won the election that his outburst was took his wife and in laws to calm him down. Now he is begging for crums and doing the same thing he accuse the labour party of doing. Shame on you.
