"Critics of the bombing campaign also said mistakes were the result of Nato's policy of restricting its pilots to bombing from 15,000 feet or above - a policy dictated not least by political considerations, notably Washington's determination to avoid horrified public reaction to the sight of "BODYBAGS" coming home."

(Richard Norton-Taylor, The Guardian, Kosovo: special report, Thursday March 9, 2000)

Today's OWAD is not very nice, but I recently discovered "bodybag" in a German advertising campaign for a new rucksack!

Be very careful to use this word properly, I wouldn't want you to make the same mistake.

Thanks to Oliver Meyer for reminding me about this error.
