Understatement of the Day Goes to Reuters: "Unrest spreads to Libyan capital..."


It's a revolution. And a secular one at that, too, just like in Egypt. Hundreds of unarmed citizens of Libya have been killed over the last 8 days by the government forces.

The headline goes on to say "..... as Arab protests simmer".


Yemeni protesters are fighting back with guns.

I guess Reuters is under orders not to use incendiary words when reporting on the on-going revolutions in northern Africa and Middle East. Whom are they trying to soothe, I wonder?
