Syrian reporter posts selfie with war dead
A group of opposition journalists had identified the man as Mohamed Jarbou’, a reporter for the state-owned television channel
A distasteful selfie of a man in Syria clad in combat fatigues posing with what seems to be dead bodies in the background surfaced this week, sparking outrage on social media, Al Arabiya.Net reported.
A group of opposition journalists had identified the man as Mohammad Jarbou’, a reporter for the state-owned television channel, contradicting initial reports that he might have been a soldier.
The group also alleged the photo was taken in a town in the Qalamoun region where forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad had launched an offensive.
This was not the first time the reporter had taken an unusual decision for a backdrop to his photos. The same man is seen posing in front of a tank in a blue press bullet-proof vest.
In another photo he is seen posing with an unidentified man with a microphone bearing the Syrian state-TV logo.
