"Younger brother seriously ill; children played with dead chickens..."

This is just awful. I had to read this part twice:

DOGUBAYAZIT, Turkey - A third child from the same family in eastern Turkey died from bird flu on Friday as doctors treated more than 20 other people, mostly youngsters, suspected of having the deadly virus.

Doctors said some of the victims had been playing with the severed heads of infected birds. The H5N1 bird flu virus has killed 74 people in east Asia and has now spread to the fringes of Europe.

Playing with severed chicken heads????????? Do those children not have any toys at all??? Screw "Toys For Tots", someone needs to organize "Toys For Turkey." And I'm not saying that to be a jerk either.
