MSF hospital in Afghanistan

I thought that the BBC Arabic TV would do a nice job covering the bombing of the Doctors Without Borders hospital in Afghanistan.

But it did not. It did about the same as Yahoo!'s front page, as in, no coverage at all.

I mean, this was the first headline on the English BBC Arabic page.

But on the BBC Arabic TV, what I'm saying is, that they didn't even mention it. It wasn't the headline, and it wasn't in any of the bulletins. Instead, they're talking about a bombing maybe in Syria, and some guy came Baha is getting kicked out of his job in Yemen, or something along those lines, and then Putin said something, and that was about all.
