Associated Press Issues 'Kill Notice' on Doctored Photo of North Korean Flood
The Associated Press issued a 'kill notice' on a doctored photo of a flood scene in North Korea's capital Pyeongyang.
The photo which was distributed on July 16th came from the North's Korean Central News Agency with which the AP has a contract to distribute photos.
However one day later AP officials said the picture was digitally altered and that the news organization did not stand by the photo.
Observers say the photo which shows several men wading through water thigh-high could have been altered to warm up support for more international aid.
