Police say they are sorry

The week's news at a glance.

London

London police apologized to a Bangladeshi family this week for bursting into their home and shooting one of them in the mistaken belief that the house harbored terrorists. “I apologize for the hurt that we have caused in tackling the terrorist threat in the U.K.,” said assistant commissioner Andy Hayman. That carefully worded statement was unlikely to placate an angry Muslim community. The shooting victim, Mohammed Abdul Kahar, 23, has said that the officer never identified himself as a policeman before firing into his shoulder from a distance of 3 feet. The family’s home was ransacked, and Kahar and one of his brothers were detained for more than a week. Police say they raided the home after getting a tip that proved to be incorrect.
