British soldiers shot a ... boy?

"London's ambassador in Spain was obliged to make a public apology on November 20 after British soldiers based in Gibraltar shot at a boy painted in the colours of the Spanish flag during target practice."
From a Reuters news release which was later corrected to read "buoy" rather than "boy."

Found at Regret the Error, which specializes in collecting such misprints.
