AP reports it was a "wall surrounding a mosque"
and not the mosque itself...and they say the were missles not bombs...

isn't sending missles to a certain location the same thing as bombing it?

1. First of All, I Don't Believe Them, This is Military Propoganda
Were 40 people sitting on the wall?

Second of all, even if it were true, which I doubt, it won't matter to the Iraqi's.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you JIHAD!

Mosque hit by missiles, 40 dead
Last Updated Wed, 07 Apr 2004 10:48:34

FALLUJAH, IRAQ - At least 40 people were killed on Wednesday when three missiles slammed into a mosque in a besieged city in central Iraq.

The missiles were fired by a U.S. helicopter as marines battled insurgents in Fallujah.

Worshippers were gathering at the Abdul-Aziz al-Samarrai for afternoon prayers at the time of the attack.

Witnesses said more than 40 people were killed. Bodies were being taken from the scene in cars to area homes where temporary hospitals were set up.
