A 12-year-old girl died Monday after she was struck by a warning shot fired as a vehicle accelerated toward an Iraqi police station, said the U.S.-led military coalition.
The girl, who was standing about 100 meters (about 328 feet) behind the vehicle, was hit by one of the rounds, the release said. Troops attempted to treat her at the scene, but she died while being transported to a hospital.
TVNL Comment: So is it standard practice to fire warning shots at street level in an occupied city...as opposed to firing shots into the air? Is this our the U.S. military conducts their occupation?
