” Publish photos terrorists and glorifying them, it’s not the same. Dabiq (review of EI) glorifies “he said.
On the side of 20 Minutes ,” for now, we have not stopped decision in writing. We do not anonymisons perpetrators of attacks and we reserve the right to publish their photos, observing the extent to which we have become accustomed to working on these issues, “said the chief editor.
