Hello media: UN now says IDF did not shell UNRWA schoolTopics: Middle East News and Perspectives
Where's the headlines from the international media on this one?
Via the JP: "A clerical error led the UN to falsely accuse Israel of shelling one of its Gaza schools in the Jabalya refugee camp during Operation Cast Lead, the international organization admitted this week."A "clerical error" and no major headlines throughout the world? Yet the media was all over it when the original story made Israel look bad and painted Hamas and the UN as victims. And as Charles at LGG notes, ""What about all those wire service photographs showing pools of blood and bodies inside the school? Can anyone say, "staged?""
