Today’s winner of the ‘Photo of the Day’ award goes to… Ben Innes, the 26 year old British man held hostage by EgyptAir aeroplane hijacker Seif Eldin Mustafa. It’s one of the most bizarre photos we’ve seen on the news lately and epitomises the image of ‘The British Lad’.
Ben is grinning wildly at the camera while looking relaxed with his sunglasses still on his head and his hands by his side while a hint of a faint smile can be seen on his captor who also looks pretty relaxed, especially considering he’s wearing a suicide belt (however this is reported to have been a fake belt).

Strasser shared the experience via his Twitter account. Continue reading
Tragic news just out of Virginia. A reporter and cameraman were both brutally slain in what appears an unprovoked attack during a LIVE broadcast. The last piece of footage Adam Ward captured, we hope knowingly was the gunman’s identity.
These are the images we should be sharing on social media.
In the immediate aftermath, images were circulating on social media of the attack as it happened, including one individual who uploaded footage of the attack on to Youtube. It is from this footage we can garner an image of the gunman.
Rest in peace Alison Parker & Adam Ward.
