Police block anti-war activists Cindy Sheehan (L) of the US, whose son Casey was killed during combat in Iraq in April 2004, and Medea Benjamin (R), the founding director of Code Pink, as they try to enter the headquarters of US Forces Korea (USFK) to meet the USFK head in Seoul. A group of US peace activists led by Sheehan staged a protest outside the headquarters base of US troops, urging a halt to the relocation of US military bases in South Korea.(AFP/Kim Jae-Hwan)
If this hadn’t run on Yahoo under an AFP byline, I’d strongly suspect photoshop. This placard is just the type of thing used to build common “enter your text”-type sign-building toys. And the whole image looks a bit weird. Colors and lighting appears to be off, and such.
