Friendly fire episode VI: attack of the Kurds.
An American warplane has bombed a Kurdish convoy in northern Iraq which included members of US special forces.
The BBC's world affairs editor John Simpson, who was travelling with the convoy, says he counted at least 10 bodies and others wounded.
It is the latest in a series of "friendly fire" incidents involving coalition forces during the Iraq war.
This gets better and better, doesn't it? What the hell is wrong with the US military? Have they got so bored targeting the actual enemy they feel a need to not only attack soldiers on their own side but also the very people they're supposed to be saving from Saddam?
