Modern Warfare 3 has own 'No Russian' with little girl

If there's one thing Infinity Ward's gotten good at, it's using shock tactics. The "nuke" level of Modern Warfare generated a lot of discussion, only to be eclipsed by the highly controversial "No Russian" stage in Modern Warfare 2. Now, leaked footage has revealed that Modern Warfare 3 is following suit. 

How do you top a sequence in which you gun down innocent civilians in an airport? Easy! You go for the children. Although the Infinity Ward decided not to go interactive this time, it is no less shocking a scene thanks to the subject of the event. 

The video is below if you want to watch it. In the event that the footage gets taken down by Activision, I will briefly describe the video as well, but obviously don't read any further if you want to avoid spoilers.

In any case, expect the Daily Mail to be all over this tomorrow, after stealing its story from game blogs.

[So yes. This time, we see a family video being recorded by tourists in London. A man, a woman, and a very young girl. As the mother and her child get in frame for the video, a van pulls up behind them and explodes, obviously killing the family. Oh, the shock!]
