15. It's 1 killed, 20 injured; not 20 killed
though I'm sure the casualty count will go up,a nd it's still damn terrible, but one likes to be accurate when one can so one doesn't look like a spinmeister.

And the article says we don't know if the one killed was a soldier or a passenger.

Dammit, why does this shit keep going on?
