Terror publicity

Please will you stop putting pictures of terrorists on the front page (or any other page) of you newspaper.

The publicity will undoubtedly encourage more young people to want to become involved in terrorism.

The example on 17 January is particularly bad, as it shows a couple of young lads apparently having a good time together, adding the possibility of happy companionship to that of 
publicity to others who may be thinking about becoming radicalised.
