Photo of earthquake victims in China used by the Turkish government to claim Muslim were bing killed by Buddhist monks in Burma

The campaign of communitary mobilisation in the Muslim countries relies on some particularly shocking visuals. This photograph was published by the Turkish government. It is supposed to show the Muslim victims of Buddhist monks in Burma. It is in fact an old photo of a funeral ceremony for the victims of an earthquake in China. [See the original Getty image. The photo was also published on an Iranian website, claiming it showed Muslims in Burma being burned. —Eds.]
