Americans slain by U.S. forces on hijacked yacht, according to CNN

Via CNN: Americans slain by captors on hijacked yacht; pirates killed, arrested

Very sad news, but based on one of the CNN Staff writer’s paragraphs, you’d think the Americans were actually killed by U.S. forces:

Ship owners Jean and Scott Adam and Phyllis Macay and Bob Riggle were found shot by U.S. forces who boarded the vessel about 1 a.m. ET, officials said

Emphasis added.

I know what the writer meant—that the Americans who were shot were found by U.S. forces—but it definitely does not read that way.

UPDATE: And look at that, CNN has already edited the paragraph to the following:

Ship owners Jean and Scott Adam and Phyllis Macay and Bob Riggle were found shot after U.S. forces boarded the vessel about 1 a.m. ET, officials said.

Definitely better.
