Sometimes, you just have a bad day:
US strikes on al-Qa'ida chiefs kill nomads
The herdsmen had gathered with their animals around large fires at night to ward off mosquitoes. But lit up by the flames, they became latest victims of America's war on terror.
It was their tragedy to be misidentified in a secret operation by special forces attempting to kill three top al-Qa'ida leaders in southern Somalia.
Oxfam yesterday confirmed at least 70 nomads in the Afmadow district near the border with Kenya had been killed. The nomads were bombed at night and during the day while searching for water sources.
In all fairness, though, don't think of them as simple nomads. Think of them as civilians that hadn't become terrorist insurgents yet. There, that's better.
P.S. That overwhelming yawn of indifference you hear is coming from the Blogging Tories. But that's just a guess.
