International media descended on Dallas in the aftermath of Thursday night’s shooting of 12 Dallas police officers and two civilians during a peaceful demonstration.

Police parked two patrol cars in the plaza in front of DPD headquarters on South Lamar Street. Visitors have covered the cars with flowers and messages.

Police stood guard. Some wept and others talked to passersby and to media. Reporters stood in front of cameras speaking Russian, Spanish, German, French and several languages I couldn’t make out.
