Drop the Dead Donkey

A dead donkey is seen in front of Israeli police vehicles on a road near the West Bank village of Salem near Nablus April 7, 2008. An Israeli bus carrying settlers ran over and killed a Palestinian shepherd near the West Bank city of Nablus on Monday, local Palestinian residents said. REUTERS/Abed Omar Qusini (WEST BANK)

Hmm. A picture of an Israeli vehicle in front of a dead donkey, to illustrate a story about a palestinian allegation that an Israeli bus ran over a palestinian. What possibly could Reuters’ Abed Omar Qusini be trying to say?

Clue: the fact he placed the words “local Palestinian residents said” (which indicate it is a claim made by palestinians, and not a verified fact) only at the very end of the long caption is likely related.
