Emirates 24/7, please do not stop being awesome

This is the picture that the online paper ran with a story about a man who tried to murder his wife by setting fire to her, prompting this (very justified) rant from the Kipp Report blog. You won't see the picture anymore, here

This rant doesn't even mention my personal favourite illustrative offering by the site's eccentric photo editors (long removed): a woman's stocking-clad legs poking out of a '60s era car trunk (boot) to illustrate the attempted kidnapping a rape of a woman in Dubai. 

The worst offenders don't usually stay up long, but it's the fact that they are chosen in the first place, as the Kipp report suggests, that is fascinating.
