Newspaper bosses in Austria have been accused of faking a dramatic photograph of a family fleeing Syria's civil war-torn city Aleppo.
The snap - published in the country's biggest selling Die Kronen Zeitung newspaper - shows a father cradling a child with a woman in a hijab beside him as they hurry through what appears to be the bombed out ruins of the city.
It was being used to illustrate a story on people fleeing the city as government forces clash with rebels.
But sharp-eyed bloggers at the socials news website Reddit noticed that while the family image was genuine, the background had been photoshopped.
The original photo - which first appeared on the European Pressphoto Agency’s website on July 26 - shows an ordinary family walking along an undamaged street.
Critics have blamed the faking on a media desperation to show brutality on the part of government forces.
