WTH's going on in Ivory Coast?

My question is directed less at the political scene, but more along the lines of do these reporters *not* know what a helicopter looks like?

A destroyed Ivory Coast helicopter. The French blew up two warplanes on the ground and later destroyed at least three army helicopters by later Saturday in Ivory Coast. Ivory Coast warplanes had earlier executed a devastating raid on a French army camp killing the nine men and wounding 23 others.
(emphasis mine)

Some of my more astute readers might also notice the caption for the third pic on that page:

Erm, last I checked tanks don't have wheels. Then again, we're talking about the French "Military" - they need the wheels to make faster get-aways I guess.
