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 (Krone) 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.
