Reuters Admits Beirut Photo Was Altered

The Reuters news agency has admitted that it altered a photograph of Beirut after an aerial bombardment, and has withdrawn the photo, suspending the photographer "until investigations are completed into changes made..."

The photographer who sent the altered photo is the same one behind many of the images of Qana, which were also thought to have been staged.

Ynet News has the details.

Charles Johnson's Little Green Footballs, which first raised the alert on the faking of the photograph, is discussing the issue further.
