Coverage of two atrocities

Maariv International has an overview of media coverage of the two atrocities from yesterday:

A day after members of Palestinian factions mutilated the bodies of six IDF soldiers in Gaza, international media outlets worldwide chose to focus on a different story demonstrating the cruelty of Muslim radicals.

An examination of international newspapers reveals that the beheading of American national Nick Berg in Iraq occupies the western press more than the mutilation of the Israeli soldiers. It can be assumed, however, that the decision made by leading Israeli news networks and the country’s Foreign Ministry to avoid airing the horrific pictures from Gaza led to lack of interest internationally.
