Craig Oliver, editor of the BBC’s Ten O’Clock TV News has some horrifying statistics on the Editors’ blog today:
â€¢ Around 30 to 40 people are killed every day in the current Israel/Lebanon conflict.
â€¢ About 100 people are killed every day in the violence in Iraq.
â€¢ And 1,200 people are killed every day in the war in the Congo.
He explains that they were planning to run them in the reverse order tonight. It is another of the valuable insights provided by the new Blog in which BBC news editors open up on their decisions and experiences.
