Authorities are investigating how shots fired during a training exercise at the Grafenwöhr US military installation in Bavaria ended up hitting a school and residential building in the nearby town on Friday.

Nobody was injured, but the incident rattled leaders in the town of Grafenwöhr, which has a population of about 6,600.

“I was worried about the city, but fortunately nothing serious happened," deputy Mayor Udo Greim told the Süddeutsche Zeitung. The newspaper reported that there have been similar incidents three or four times over the past 25 years.

In a statement, the US Army said the bullets came from 12.7-millimetre rounds fired by a machine gun mounted on a Humvee. They hit several buildings, including a vocational school and residential building.

It added that US military and German police were looking into what happened and how such incidents can be prevented.

Those Bush era plans just keep on going regardless of who's in power. rofl.gif Seriously, what an embarrassing comment by Bush and an embarrassing incident on the part of the US military.
