“Deaths as Israel storms aid ship” or “Israel ‘intercepts Gaza flotilla'”?

I usually am not one to comment on politics here, but today I noticed something odd on BBC.

So which one is this BBC?

Are they conflicted about who to blame?

As I was navigating between articles there was of course coverage of the convoy to Gaza intercepted by Israel I noticed that in the “Most Popular Stories Now” list that the article’s title swapped back and forth a few times as I continued to navigate through the site.

Both titles led to the same article entitled “Deaths as Israeli forces storm Gaza aid ship.”

I wonder if there’s a conflict in the BBC office over how to cast whose fault this disaster is.
