Iraqi Air Force Accidentally Bombs Baghdad

An Iraqi Air Force Su-25 has unintentionally dropped one of its bombs on the neighborhood known as New Baghdad, reportedly killing several civilians.  The bomb apparently had failed to drop during the bombing mission, but reportedly worked loose and dropped as the aircraft was returning to base.

As people died, I will make no further comment.
