The post, while I appreciate your continuous struggle to keep us updated with events, I do think that it is pertinent to show respect to the dead. It may sound outrageous but some kind of images should be kept im the closet. I remember someone spreading pictures and taking delight in Bate besong's smashed carcass.

I have read about all sorts of terrorist attacks and disasters from very advanced news agencies but they usually steer away from publishing nasty pictures of the victims.

I think this doesn't only indicate respect for the dead but is important for the living who cannot put up with such images!

Inasmuch as I laud “The Post” for the unremitting drive to bringing news to our doorsteps, I’m sometimes bewildered by some of the images they flaunt on here. I find it obscene and totally unacceptable for a supposedly renowned media to ramp such appalling images down our throats. I doubt if the publisher bothered to consider the emotional distress such a publication would cause to some members of the public and the bereaved family. Whatever way you choose to look at…it fits perfectly into the category branded “irresponsible journalism”.

ETHICS, Plus IGNORANCE,brings out a repugnantjounalistic mixture. The post has to upgrade to the increasing awareness level of its readership.

Post Management,
Thanks as you have listened to the cry of your readers and acted accordingly. Do not repeat that kind of error again.

just for clarification sake, I was one one the "white supposed" tourists who climbed the mountain "without the knowledge of the local authorities" and whom has allegedly been "questioned and grilled" by the local authorities. In reality we hired the guides via the official ecco tourism offices in bueia, just wanted to climb the mountain to enjoy the walk and beautiful surroundings and happened to notice the plane in a distance after which we decided to check it out to see whether there were any survivors. We've never been questioned by the police and were never "grilled" by them. Just to show you that you don't always have to believe what the media writes.
