Only 1 of the 58 air missions the U.S. military carried out Monday over Iraq
CNN.com - U.S. says bomb hit wrong house in Iraq - Jan 5, 2006
The strike flattened a family's home, killing six of the family members and wounding three others, said a spokesman for the Salaheddin provincial governor's office. A father and daughter survived with only minor injuries, he said.

The Baiji strike was one of 58 air missions the U.S. military carried out Monday over Iraq.

U.S. military officials said they are investigating why the wrong building was hit.

In a news conference Tuesday, White House spokesman Scott McClellan emphasized the U.S. position that its military "goes out of the way to avoid civilian casualties."


Gee, I wonder how many other such incidents did not get reported.
