BEIRUT, Lebanon - Lebanon's prime minister said one person was killed in an Israeli air raid Monday in the southern border village of Houla, lowering the death toll from 40.
Prime Minister Fuad Saniora said at a news conference that he had based the initial tally on unspecified information that he had received. He offered no other explanation for the error.

Oh, did I say 40? sheesh ... no rush to condemn here ... Go IDF!
When one dead guy looks like 40 dead guys, it was really a direct hit....
FReepers were skeptical about this report the minute it hit the wires. You don't suppose the powers-that-be in Lebanon know the fact-checking blogosphere is on to them, do you?
It must be true! I have the photos! No? They'll be ready soon.
Another bogus story that was retracted because their Qana deceit was proved to be totally staged and false. So this Qana part 2 staged story was pulled before it could be proved to be another staged doctored photo lie perpetuated by the media to help their allies in the terrorist world. Israel is totally spanking Hizbollah and killing them and their sypathizers in large numbers, and the media lies to the contrary don't change reality. The end of this week, or next week, it will be obvious to all interrested that Hizbollah is losing BAD, and has no chance against Israel. And the media whoring in this war will NEVER be forgotten.
"BEIRUT (Reuters) - Israeli air strikes killed at least 25 people in Lebanon on Monday prompting an emotional Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora to demand a "quick and decisive ceasefire" to end the 27-day-old war. Choking back tears in an emotional speech to an emergency meeting of Arab foreign ministers in Beirut, Siniora said more than 40 civilians were killed in an air raid in a southern village. But he later revised the toll to one. As diplomatic efforts to end the 27-day-old war between Israel and Hizbollah guerrillas stalled, air strikes elsewhere in the south and the Bekaa valley killed at least 24 people. "
What horribly biased writing they do there.
You got to pay attention to how they describe the dead....
"25 people" = 25 Hezzies
"25 civilians"=3 civilians
Original body count based on a Reuters photo by Adnan Hajj, no doubt.
"Would you believe, 10 killed?"
"Ok. How about, an innocent woman accidently stubbed her toe?"
We should've 'gated' this - Qanagate, Reutergate or something to really get it tipped to the public. The MSM can't resist gates, even if it's about them.
