Death By Leaflet

In a grimly symbolic incident -we are so ham fisted, the military is a blunt instrument (when all you got is a hammer every problem looks like a nail)- they kill a child with an airdrop of leaflets.

Britain’s ministry of defence is investigating the death of an Afghan girl who died after being hit by a box of leaflets dropped by the Royal Air Force. The information leaflets were dropped in boxes from an RAF Hercules aircraft over a rural area of Helmand province in southern Afghanistan on 23 June. The box failed to break apart in mid-air and landed on top of the girl who died later in hospital.
