Reader reaction to Reuters news
This picture is offensive and should be removed. It shows humanity at one of its weakest points. Imagine yourself in this youth’s position, regardless of opinion.
I am appalled that someone chose it as the front cover of the slideshow. We should be ashamed as humans beings, for treating people in this manner.
We can do better.
Again, this image should be removed or at least not be showcased as the main photo.
Thanks, but I respectfully disagree. Like it or not, photojournalism in a war often is not about showing humanity at its best.
This was an extremely powerful shot and it deserved the showcase we gave it, in my opinion: GBU Editor
