                Too bad and sad news...

                The tremor on Monday evening triggered the collapse of
                about 30 buildings in and around the village of Laalam in the province of Bejaia,
                300 km (190 miles) east of the capital Algiers, the radio reported.
                The dead children were aged 5, 9, and 13.

                It was the deadliest tremor to have struck the earthquake-prone
                North African country since a 2003 quake in Boumerdes,
                northern Algeria, killed 2,300 people, injured more than 10,000 and made
                at least 100,000 homeless


                I can remember that a 2003 quake in Boumerdes,northern Algeria.
                Just then
                my friend who is living in Bouzareah in Alger
                got in touch to me.
                He said
                that there was a fairly strong earthquake shook
                in here yesterday,
                and we felt sevral time aftershooks.

                Our Japanes ppl have been experienced many times too.
                Anyway, the earth is strange recently, I think.

                            To be fair, you have to point out mistakes like that, even though they are just mistakes. Leaving them like that can have serious implications. For example, when you are writing the Quran and you make a mistake, you can't leave it like that, its very wrong. I understand what you are saying phylay that is just an innocent mistake but it has to be corrected.

                              It could even have other consequences for the poster and the reader..but this is an other issue.
                              misunderstanding is our lack of love ,i say Our..
