ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. A witness recounted the moment he saw the car of Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana Galiza burst into flames on Tuesday (October 17), saying it happened so quickly there was nothing he could do to help. Frans Sant, a neighbor of Daphne Caruana Galiza, had been travelling towards the car of the Maltese journalist when he saw a small explosion emanating from her vehicle. Sant said he then saw a larger explosion and the vehicle skidded away from him, missing him by only a few meters and it then burst into flames in a near-by field. The death of Daphne Caruana Galizia, who ran a hugely popular anti-corruption blog, has stunned the usually tranquil and small Mediterranean island nation. American FBI investigators are expected to arrive later in the day in order to help with the investigations at the bomb site.
