The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

AP Photographer Treated to Indian Hospitality

AP photographer Mukhtar Khan was reportedly roughed up by the Indian police while covering a protest against the Kashmiri elections over the weekend. While I'm sure there's more to the story than that, hopefully he'll still have a speedy recovery.

He probably wasn't covering it. He was participating in it.

The India Police probably know the photographer's work, which most likely since he works with Reuters and AP supports the terrorists viewpoint.
