    The news agency Reuters has withdrawn from sale 920 pictures taken by a photographer after finding he had doctored two images taken in Lebanon.
    Bloggers first spotted that smoke on Adnan Hajj's image of the aftermath of an Israeli air strike in Beirut appeared to have been made darker.

    A Reuters investigation confirmed this and also found two flares had been added to an image of an Israeli jet.

    If anyone has seen the photos of Beirut, it is so obvious that the Photoshop clone tool was used to add smoke, that it looks like a kid did it. Really amateurish job.

    Besides, do you really need to doctor photos of a war zone that is already horrific enough as is? The photo editor at Reuters should have caught this immediately.
