Photo editors at Hungarian news website Origo found a photo that seems to be retouched before publication on the website of one of the radio channels operated by BBC. A portrait of one of the musicians has been cropped out from a group shot and some details in the background have been cloned out. BBC claims it is not a faking of the photo because the photo is not used as a news image.
