Another Reuter's Flop???

Via Arutz 7:
Here's how the story looked at 3:46 PM today (also reported here):
Report: Israel Strafed Funeral
15:53 Aug 08, '06 / 14 Av 5766

(IsraelNN.com) Israeli planes bombed a funeral procession according to a report from Reuters News Agency. One person was killed while mourners were burying 15 relatives killed in bombings on Monday, the report said.

Mourners shouted anti-American slogans. The IDF has not confirmed or denied the report.

Here's how the story looked at 4:24 PM, less than an hour later:
Bombing of Funeral: False Reporting by Reuters
16:43 Aug 08, '06 / 14 Av 5766

(IsraelNN.com) The day after it was revealed that a Reuters News Agency doctored photographs to show an anti-Israel bias, the news service incorrectly reported Tuesday afternoon that the IDF bombed a funeral procession in Lebanon.

Reuters has corrected without apology its earlier story that the IDF strafed a funeral procession and updated the report to state that the bombs struck a village at the same time the funeral was taking place, adding that "the air strike was not in the immediate vicinity of the funeral."
