    Inquest told Brazilian shot 8 times

    According to this article, from the Guardian, the innocent Brazilian man, Jean Charles de Menezes, who was murdered by police at Stockwell last week was shot 8 times, not 5 as has been previously reported:

    The details of the number of rounds emptied into the 27-year-old Brazilian electrician after his pursuit through Stockwell station by an armed plainclothes squad emerged at the opening of an inquest into his death yesterday. The Independent Police Complaints Commission also began an inquiry into the shooting yesterday. The commission's chairman, Nick Hardwick, told the Guardian the investigation would look at "officers of all ranks", potentially including those who authorised special shoot-to-kill tactics against suicide bombers.
