Wrong body

How delicate solemnity is. How easily it can be shattered.

The Australian Defence Minister was about to accompany the mother of a soldier killed in Iraq to collect the body when he found out that the body on the plane was the wrong one. He then had to tell the mother, who phoned the Prime Minister. In addition, it turns out that the story the minister had originally put out about the death was now quite correct.

Either there's another story here, or Mr Cock-up is working overtime.

From The Australian.
