Unless someone was trying to hide it.
And this would not be the first time that Reuters has been caught altering photos for propaganda purposes.
Sadly, this is not the first time Reuters has been caught [url=http://http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adnan_Hajj_photographs_controversy]manipulating photos this way.[/u rl]
