Faking photos, part 652

They haven't quite got the hang of faking photos yet, over at AFP. The picture below is captioned "An elderly Iraqi woman shows two bullets which she says hit her house following an early coalition forces raid in the predominantly Shiite Baghdad suburb of Sadr City". Now look closely. Notice anything strange?

That's right. The bullets haven't been fired.

Via BlackFive, who then go on to show how this woman might be related to the sorely missed DFH's Unluckiest Property Owner in Beirut.

Maybe the American troops have resorted to throwing unfired rounds at the woman above because fired ones don't seem to harm her. Not in this photo shoot:

Nor in this one:
