Reuters - Israeli missile - Again?

This BBC report of the missile attack on the Reuters van is curious for 2 reasons.

1. They report the attack as a fact despite the mounting evidence of fraud in reports, photos and videos from Lebanon and Gaza. For example, the Red Cross ambulance, Beirut burning, Martyr's Crossroad, Lebanese Pietà, Flat Fatima, Green Helmet, etc.

2. Both the photos on the BBC page have been uploaded not as JPGs or GIFs, but as PaintShop Pro files. This is not evidence of tampering, but it is curious. It is rather shoddy practice, if nothing else.

Little Green Footballs has a lot more on this.
