Egypt paper accused of faking photo

Newspaper criticised for apparently doctoring photo to give President Mubarak prominence.


    Al Ahram, Egypt's oldest Arabic-language daily newspaper, has come under fire for publishing an apparently doctored photograph showing leaders involved in the Middle East peace process.

    In the original photo, Hosni Mubarak, the Egyptian president, is trailing behind the rest of leaders down the red carpet. However, in the altered version he is seen leading the group.

    Al Ahram declined to comment on the matter.
