The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Nice Shootin', Tex!

My hat's off to Reuters photographer Fayaz Kabli, who captured this photograph with the most delicate of timing. Fayaz, that's some trigger finger you've got there!

An Indian police officer fires a tear gas shell towards Kashmiri Muslim protesters led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq during a procession in Srinagar April 25, 2008. Police in Kashmir's main city fired tear gas on Friday to disperse several thousand demonstrators protesting against human rights violations they said were committed by Indian security forces. The protest came hours after Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh began a two-day visit to the troubled Himalayan region, where tens of thousands of people have been killed since a revolt against New Delhi's rule broke out in 1989.

Incidentally, from the looks of the photo, we've got a Rent-a-Riot Round-up going on in Srinagar, Kashmir at the moment. There are currently no Rage Boy Sightings on the wires, but I'm going to be keeping my eyes peeled. For live coverage, be sure to check out the Yahoo! slideshow from today's festivities.

Update: A legal way to embed the image? I'm game:

And before you ask:—Yes, that's all you get... for free. I'm just glad it's not another browser-killing Macromedia Flash object.
