“The photograph was actually taken by Marco di Lauro in Iraq in 2003”
BBC News Uses “Iraq Photo to Illustrate Syrian Massacre”:
(The Telegraph, Hannah Furness) Photographer Marco di Lauro said he nearly “fell off his chair” when he saw the image being used, and said he was “astonished” at the failure of the corporation to check their sources.
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 “Occupy Rectum” movement is definitely a most enduring one! It’s hard to believe that it is STILL going strong, after all these centuries! It’s all good, though. I’ll just continue to maintain my position: standing upright, facing the horizon, secure in the knowledge that the ASS is no place for the HEAD to be!
