Fed-Up AP Reporter Storms Out Of Briefing When State Dept. Won’t Answer This Question

Associated Press reporter Matt Lee angrily stormed out of the State Department’s daily press briefing Tuesday when spokesman John Kirby would not answer his question about how many Americans had been injured in the terrorist attack in Brussels, Belgium. The city of Brussels was rocked by coordinated terror attacks Tuesday morning that killed over 30 people and injured 187 others. The Islamic State jihadist group claimed responsibility for the attacks, although Kirby said at the briefing that the U.S. government cannot yet confirm the veracity of those claims. Kirby also said in his opening remarks that Americans were injured in the attacks, but the State Department is not ready to give a specific figure of how many were hurt. Lee said he understood the department could not give a complete count of the number of Americans injured but asked Kirby for the minimum number possible. “I’m going to avoid giving a specific number,” Kirby responded.
