RT crew arrive at site of OSCE car blast in just three minutes – NGO

The implication of this report is that RT had advance notice of an attack on an OSCE vehicle which resulted in the death of an OSCE member American observer.  This point is not explicitly stated. 

It is also not specifically mentioned that OSCE members from other vehicles kept a detailed description of events as they occurred. They recorded the time of the blast, the time of arrival of the RT crew, and the time of arrival of others.  

It is damning that the RT crew arrived only three minutes after the blast, but this is not evidence of collusion.
