Another odd headline from the LA Times

Today’s Los Angeles Times, on page A-7 has this headline over a small article: “Christians clash with Hindus”

Then the article explains that in India, 19 churches (most small, mud-and-thatch buildings) have been burned down by Hindu extremists since Christmas Eve. Meanwhile, the same extremists also burned down the house of Radhakant Nayak, a Christian and a member of India’s upper house of parliament. Some of the Christians retaliated by setting fire to several homes belonging to Hindus. There have been long-standing tensions between the Hindu majority and the small Christian community over conversions to Christianity.

Sort of like putting “Jews Clash with Germans” over a story about the Warsaw Ghetto uprising, wasn’t it?
