VIENNA, Austria -- Austrian newspaper publisher Christoph Dichand apologized after Kronen Zeitung was caught using a faked dramatic photograph of a family fleeing Syria's civil war-torn city Aleppo.
The picture - published in the country's biggest selling Kronen Zeitung
- 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.
