the whole story: introduction

The February 1997 issue of LM magazine ran a story which raised embarrassing questions about ITN's award-winning pictures from a Bosnian Serb-run camp. ITN tried to have every copy of the magazine, which contained the article The Picture that Fooled the World by German journalist Thomas Deichmann, pulped.

LM has refused to back down and ITN have sued the magazine's editor and publishers for libel. Read why the magazine is refusing to give in to ITN's libel writs and gagging orders in an open letter from Mick Hume, editor of LM.

This site tells the whole story ITN does not want you to read, and explains what has happened so far in the libel case.
