Accuracy in Media

That’s a major ‘oops’ moment:

Taiwan’s navy on Friday mistakenly fired a supersonic anti-ship missile, although there were no injuries caused by the mishap, the official Central News Agency reported.

The 500-ton patrol boat Chinchiang was undergoing an inspection inside a military base when the missile — a Hsiung Feng III — was fired off and landed about 40 nautical miles (46 miles) away in waters off the islands of Penghu near Taiwan, the agency said.
