image for Water balloon fight - 4 dead

France is in mourning today after an emergency response team shot dead four teenagers they mistook to be terrorists.

The teenagers, who have yet to be named, were protesting outside Nicholas Sarkozy's house when the incident occurred. They are thought to have belonged to the "Water Balloon Fights for Peace" group, whose members believe armies should use water balloons instead of weapons to solve conflicts, so, according to their website, "people would have fun, get a bit damp then laugh at the jolly time they had, rather than complaining about missing limbs and bullet wounds."

Following a call from a concerned neighbour, an emergency response team turned up to see a water balloon fight in progress and opened fire when one water balloon explode some 20 feet from Nicholas Sarkozy's front door. The emergency response team are thought to have mistaken the brightly coloured, balloon shaped, water filled water balloons with dark coloured, explodey hand-grenades. A spokesman confirmed that four people were killed and 3 are recovering in hospital and that one member of the emergency response team is being held for questioning, though, as he put it "its less injured than the last time."

This is a further embarrassment for the French government, following on from the incident earlier this month where 16 people were injured during a demonstration because somebody mixed live bullets with blanks and nobody could tell the difference, despite the bullets looking totally different. When questioned if the same person was involved in both shootings, the spokesman mumbled "baguettes, baguettes haw-he-haw bibliotheque" and walked out, twiddling his moustache.

Funeral arrangements will be announced shortly.
