Israelis have just suffered at least three terror attacks in under 24 hours. Details are still coming in… It took time for the foreign press to catch up with the day’s Israeli media reports. When the Associated Press eventually published an article, it began with the words: Israeli forces killed two Palestinians… Reuters began with the phrase: At least two Palestinians were killed and 16 Israelis hurt… They did not clarify that the Palestinians who had been killed were reportedly carrying out acts of violence when they were shot: at least one was in the act of throwing a Molotov cocktail at Israeli troops. An AFP article was constructed similarly to the AP and Reuters stories.
