Lebanon coverage update

Same incident, two reports (hat tip Alison)

BBC:
Earlier on Friday, two mortar rounds hit a convoy of vehicles carrying civilians escaping the violence in southern Lebanon.

The BBC's Jim Muir, who was with the convoy, said two people travelling in German TV vehicle were wounded when the rounds exploded next to their car.

The convoy, organised by the Australian embassy, was returning to the port city of Tyre from the border village of Rmeish, where hundreds of people have been trapped by the Israeli offensive.

Our correspondent says the cars were clearly marked as a press and civilian convoy, and that individual journalists had been in contact with the Israelis who knew about the journey.

A BBC security adviser travelling in a car behind the German car said he believed the mortar rounds had been fired from the Israeli side.
The Times covers the same story but finds space for the following:
Even before today's air strike, aid agencies had given warning that getting safe passage for the vital supplies beyond Tyre was proving highly dangerous due to Israeli bombardment and Hezbollah rocket launchers exploiting convoys as cover

Hezbollah fighters further endangered the mercy missions by using the arrival of UN convoys as cover to bring out launchers and fire rockets at Israel from near the vehicles, he claimed, attracting incoming fire.
Why is the BBC ignoring this?

how would this BBC twat have the faintest idea where the mortar rounds came from? has he ever actually fired one? it's virtually impossible to know from inside a vehicle.

all you would see in those circumstances is what appears to be the end of the world, happening about a few metres away. it's terrifying; unless he's been a Forward Artillery Observer in the Army for years, he wouldn't have a f***ing clue where the rounds were coming in from.

typical lying BBC slag.
