"left at least seven dead" in Afghanistan

Look how the New York Times report the shooting by NATO and Afghan puppet soldiers of Afghan protesters:  " Armed with rocks, bricks, pistols and wooden sticks, protesters angry over the burning of Korans at the largest American base in Afghanistan this week took to the streets in demonstrations in a half-dozen provinces on Wednesday that left at least seven dead and many more injured."  Notice that there is no killer in the phrasing.  In fact, the way it was phrased, it basically said that "demonstration left at least seven dead."
