Seems like the beheading report (which came in several news accounts and quoted the Afghan police) was wrong..its still awful that so many people died over some controlled combustion in Florida with which they could have had no possible direct connection, but at least it was not a beheading..somehow, that does seem to lessen the shock value.

Well, thank goodness for small mercies.

Burning books = controlled combustion

Beheading (if done in the halal / kosher way)= controlled blood letting?

When I checked your Reuters link, the article still states the police spokesman as having said " Eight foreigners were killed, and two were beheaded." I wonder why Reuters hasn't scrubbed this report yet.
