Aljazeera.Net - Violence across Iraq costs more lives: "Violence across Iraq costs more lives"

This is a fairly ordinary article about the daily operations in Iraq. In the article they detail a handful of incidents where Iraqi citizens were killed by anti-tank land mines or where American forces killed Iraqi opposition fighters in firefights or while the insurgents were planting bombs.

What is interesting, however, is the side photo of a wounded Iraqi which is captioned "Iraqis are increasingly coming under fire from occupation troops." Seems like a rather inflammatory caption which doesn't appear to be at all supported in the accompanying story.

Ah, journalism.
