A 2006 series of photographs taken by Lebanese freelance photographer and Reuters correspondent Adnan Hajj appeared to show multiple smoke plumes over Beirut following an Israeli attack and an Israeli fighter jet firing several ground attack missiles over Southern Lebanon. 
Controversy: Bloggers accused Mr. Hajj of doctoring both photos.
Verdict: Fake. An internal Reuters investigation discovered that Mr. Hajj had added extra smoke plumes to the first photo and altered an image of an Israeli fighter dropping a single defensive flare in the second.
