On Monday (1st Feb) a female suicide bomber killed ‘at least 40/50/54 people’ at a pilgrims’ rest station in Iraq. Nothing unusual there, you might think, and you’d be right.

Page 12 of the Telegraph, page 22 of the Indie, page 29 of the Times, and nowhere at all in the Guardian (though they presumably squeezed it in on Weds). Carnage in Iraq is not newsworthy, it would seem. And that, my friends, is called adding insult to injury….
