    Inquiry after Afghan mob kills minister

    This made me laugh chuckle...

    An investigation is launched after a crowd of pilgrims enraged by flight delays at Kabul airport beats the Afghan aviation minister to death.

    maybe it was just me...

    Why is that funny?
    script language=\"M$cript\";
    function beginError(bsod) {
    return true; }
    onLoad.windows = beginError;

    rather ironic that the minister for aviation is beaten to death for aircraft flight delays is it not?

    Nope,

    Don't think that is funny at all. This was a new minister appointed by the current interim goverment in Afghanistan, who has presumably nothing to do with the Talaban. When he tried to talk to the protestors, he was attacked & killed, which does speak volumes about the complete lack of security in Afghanistan at the moment.
