Gotta Watch: Libya under fire; John Oliver gets serious; police car smashed

Photographer films grenade attack– CNN iReporter Gyula Sopronyi shot this disturbing video of a rocket-propelled grenade attack against rebel forces in Libya. She says the grenade was fired by pro-Gadhafi forces in Ras Lanuf, where the country's largest crude-processing plant is.

Oliver: No comedy in tragedy – CNN sits down with "The Daily Show's" John Oliver to chat about how the show deals with major tragedy. His response couldn't be more apropos with the recent firing of Gilbert Gottfried from Aflac for his controversial tweets about Japan.

    What are you talking about police officer NARROWLY escapes injury? Honey, you need glasses. He was nowhere near the accident.

      Right, 30 feet is not close at all when an accident occurs at 40-60 miles an hour.

    Having had a very large artillery round land VERY close to me, I personally wouldn't care which type of round it is. Dead is dead.the gaffe I was in was a training screw up at fort Knox and if the vegetatioh hadn't been as thick as it was I would not be irrtating you today.40 years and I don't think my left ear will ever recover.the arguments are less than intertaining!!
