BBC Headline Madness

Jewish youth are ambushed by Arab terrorists. The two are killed, murdered. In the gunfight, they managed to shoot back.

The BBC headline to all this?

West Bank clash leaves three dead
And the opening lead-in sentence is even more nefarious:
Two Israeli off-duty soldiers and a Palestinian have died in a
shootout near the West Bank town of Hebron, Israeli officials have said.

And then this:

The two soldiers, Ahikam Amihai, 20, and David Rubin, 21, were hiking in the hills near Hebron, when Palestinian gunmen opened fire from a jeep, Israel Army radio reported.

The pair were mistakenly described in previous reports as Jewish settlers.

But they had actually lived in Kiryat Arba so I guess that makes them revenants.
