Reuters and the Clown

An Israeli Jewish man (L) dressed as a clown juggles beside Israeli soldiers during the Jewish Purim holiday celebration in the West Bank city of Hebron March 14, 2006. Purim is a celebration of the Jews' salvation from genocide in ancient Persia, as recounted in the Book of Esther. REUTERS/Eliana Aponte

How considerate of Reuters to tell editors who's the clown in the picture. But, of course, there's still a mistake in the caption: The guys in uniform are not Israeli soldiers but Border Policemen, as can be seen by their uniform and the patch on the left arm of the person standing on the far right.
