  1. BBC News uses ‘Iraq photo to illustrate Syrian massacre’

    The picture, which was actually taken on March 27, 2003, shows a young Iraqi child jumping over dozens of white body bags containing skeletons found in a desert south of Baghdad.

    It was posted on the BBC news website today under the heading “Syria massacre in Houla condemned as outrage grows”.

    The caption states the photograph was provided by an activist and cannot be independently verified, but says it is “believed to show the bodies of children in Houla awaiting burial”.

  2. Why would the BBC, any other news organization or group re-sues and misuse old photographs and lie?
