Our mistake, sorry for any inconvenience

So here we go. Finally.

In a total and utter surprise UNWRA admitted that the much publicized missiles that hit the UNWRA school in Gaza, well they didn't. They hit outside.

This incorrectly reported (my, aren't I diplomatic today) incident inflamed the anti-semitic parades and riots throughout the world.

Whats that I hear you say? Yes, I too didn't see it on CNN, read it in The Times or hear it on BBC World.

So here is the text for you, and the original document link below it;

Clarification: While correctly reported on 6 January that Israeli
shells landed outside an UNRWA school in Jabalia, resulting in an
initial estimate of 30 fatalities, the Situation Report of 7 January
referred to 'the shelling of the UNRWA school in Jabalia.' The
Humanitarian Coordinator would like to clarify that the shelling, and
all of the fatalities, took place outside rather than inside the
school. According to UNRWA, the number of fatalities is over 40, many
of them among the 1,368 people who had taken refuge in the school.
