After US soldiers shot and injured six people in Libya, James Kirkup at The Telegraph reduces the significance of the incident to a "potential propaganda disaster".

Rob Crilly at The Telegraph reports on the crash without even discussing the shooting of Libyans, but rather focussing on descriptions of the "revolutionary military people" in a strong propaganda campaign to make the intervening forces appear heroic.
Excerpt:
In a potential propaganda disaster, the rescuers opened fire on Libyans who were trying to help the pilot, injuring six of them.
