A Danish news channel has admitted that it used an image of Damascus taken from a computer game in a news report on the Syrian civil war.

Instead of a photograph, the backdrop for presenter Cecilie Beck’s introduction to the news piece was a still taken from the violent video game “Assassin’s Creed”.

Brilliant.  I love it when they do this sort of thing.  The article mentions it happening before, such as THIS ARTICLE, can't believe I've never seen that article before considering I'm a Halo tragic.

Damascus, 700 years ago vs modern-day Syria.  Amusing.  Guess it shows computer graphics are quickly becoming as life-like as real life.

maybe to make the images less painfull for viewers ?

by the name of Allah the Gracious the Merciful
Say, "I seek refuge in the Lord of daybreak From the evil of that which He created
And from the evil of darkness when it settles And from the evil of the blowers in knots
And from the evil of an envier when he envies"
truthful was Allah The Most High And Great
