The German daily Junge Welt reported
that the French public national television
channel "France 2" has diffused an image of a protest in Honduras against the June 2009 military coup and portrayed it as young Iranians resisting
security forces during the Ashura day protests in Tehran.
This abuse of images was observed by the French website "Arret Sur Images"
Further, while France 2 apologized for
, Le Parisien, a French daily which also published this image on Monday, tried to blame it on the Associated Press, the
originator of the image.
The Associated Press in return defended that they published this image already on June 29 and that it was also printed in Le Figaro and in The
Independent in the beginning of July.
