Women mysteriously disappearing, faulty missiles flying and odd shadows in North Korea. Here are some famous fake pictures, discussed in SvD today. Explanations in English below.
Picture 1: The picture of a dead Usama Bin Ladin (left) spread by Pakistani media chocked the world. The picture to the right, taken 1998 in Afghanistan, has probably been used to make the picture to the left.

Pictures 3 and 4: BP oil leak crisis center control room with and without all screens working.
Pictures 5 and 6: Iran shooting off four Shahab-3-missiles, or was it only three?
