Iraqi Terrorists Target Children Again

Paratroopers of the US 82nd Airborne discovered and disarmed a bomb planted inside Baghdad's Green Zone today. A story in the Gulf Daily News speculates that the device, improvised from a 155mm anti-tank round, was intended to be detonated as children arrived for school.

Note: The year in the header of the linked story is incorrect, and should read "2005". If you check the volume number, you will see that the web guru for the Gulf Daily News failed to update the year field for this page.

Update: As of 1/13/05, no major (or minor, that I could find) Western outlet has bothered to report this story, in keeping with their tacit policy of reporting only bad news from Iraq.
