Egyptian Military "Accidentally" Kills 12 Mexicans Having A Barbecue After Mistaking Them For ISIS

"The tourist group of 22 had parked their four four-by-four vehicles off road for a barbecue near the Bahariya oasis, a tourist site in the western desert, when army aircraft suddenly began bombing them from above"...YOU CAN'T MAKE THIS STUFF UP!

Here's Reuters with the story:

Egyptian security forces killed 12 Mexicans and Egyptians and injured 10 "by accident" on Monday in an attack after mistaking a tourist convoy for militants they were pursuing in the country's western desert, the ministry of interior said.

At least two Mexicans were killed, Mexico's foreign ministry said in a statement, though Egyptian security sources later said that eight Mexicans and four Egyptians were killed, and eight Mexicans and two Egyptians were wounded, judicial and security sources said.

The tourist group of 22 had parked their four four-by-four vehicles off road for a barbecue near the Bahariya oasis, a tourist site in the western desert, when army aircraft suddenly began bombing them from above, security sources said.

As members of the tourist convoy tried to flee, additional security forces on the ground fired on them.

Egypt is battling an insurgency that gained pace after the military ousted Islamist President Mohamed Mursi of the Muslim Brotherhood in mid-2013 after mass protests against his rule.

The insurgency, mounted by Islamic State's Egyptian affiliate, has killed hundreds of soldiers and police and has started to attack Western targets.

A joint force from the Egyptian police and military had been chasing militants in the country's vast western desert when it came across the tourist convoy, which it mistook for the militants it was pursuing, the Interior Ministry said in a statement.

Now, just read that again so it sinks in.

The Egyptian military was out on a routine, desert militant chase when they somehow managed to mistake 12 Mexicans having a barbecue for ISIS.

At that point, someone called in air support - which we imagine might well have involved some of the 12 F-16s the US delivered to Cairo in March - and when the vacationers tried to run, they were shot.

TRIGGER HAPPY LUNATICS, STRIKE FIRST, MAKE SURE LATER....I WOULD IMAGINE ISIS SHOOTS BACK, AND CARRIES WEAPONS, NOT REAL HARD TO TELL BBQ ers AND ISIS APART. IF THE MEXICANS WOULD HAVE WANTED TO BE SHOT AT AND KILLED THEY COULD HAVE JUST STAYED AT HOME.
