Ha'aretz Replaces Irrelevant Photo

To their credit, Ha'aretz editors have replaced an irrelevant image which accompanied yesterday's online story about UNRWA's cancellation of a marathon in Gaza after Hamas banned female runners. The original image, which can only be viewed now through a cached page, (see screen shot below), had nothing to do with UNRWA or with runners in Gaza.

Instead, editors originally chose to illustrate the story about UNRWA's cancellation of the event with a photograph of -- what else? -- Palestinian women railing against Israel. The original caption read:

Palestinian women take part in a protest against the death of a Palestinian detainee in an Israeli jail, in Gaza City, Feb. 24, 2013

The article is now more appropriately accompanied by the following photograph of runners in the 2011 Gaza marathon:
