London Paper Slammed For Insensitive Headline on Kenyan Stowaway

The Times of London has been slammed for a headline "Sunbather nearly hit by falling body, is Oxford graduate." The body of a stowaway fell off a Kenya Airways plane and landed in the man's garden. Analysts have accused the newspaper of insensitivity towards the deceased. Meanwhile, an investigation is underway in Kenya on how the person managed to gain access to the plane.
