Strange BBC Headine

The British Broadcasting Company (BBC)–you know, the one based in the UK–has a headline on their web site “Obama tackles UK PM on Lockerbie”.

Why not say:
“US President tackles UK PM on Lockerbie”?
or
“Obama tackles Brown on Lockerbie”?
or
“US President Obama tackles UK Prim Minister Brown” on Lockerbie?
Interesting.
