Dissing the Dead

An honorable mention in World Press Photo's contest validates our Worst Director Award to Salem Daher, a.k.a, Abdel Qadar, a.k.a, "The Green Helmet," of Qana fame. Daher can't be seen in this specific image, but it spotlights a disrespect for the dead by the photographers and the rescue workers.


Jeroen Oerlemans, The Netherlands, Panos Pictures.

Paramedics show the dead body of a baby to the press after Israeli bombing of Qana, Lebanon, 30 July

Thumbs up to Oerlemans and the judges for recognizing the story behind the story.

For more info on Daher, ZAPP filmed the Green Helmet in action. Wikipedia clarifies confusion over the names.
