Wrongly Written Headline

The headline reads:

Palestinian Shot Dead After Stabbing 

Two Israeli Soldiers In West Bank

Now, why couldn't that have been written so:

After Stabbing Two Israeli Soldiers 

Near Shiloh Arab Attacker Shot Dead

Well, why not?


Well, here is the headline for Loulla-Mae Eleftheriou-Smit's story in The Independent:

Palestinian shot dead after stabbing 
two Israeli solders in the West Bank

At least the JTA did it correctly:

2 Israeli soldiers stabbed in West Bank, attacker killed

BBC did it the wrong way:

Palestinian killed after stabbing two Israeli soldiers
