World leaders Take Heat for Paris Photo Op During March That Some Say Is Deceiving

The photos may have made it seem as if David Cameron, Benjamin Netanyahu and François Hollande and the other heads of state were standing at the head of the pack, but at the time they were in fact alone on an empty street, surrounded by security.

Heads of state including David CameronBenjamin Netanyahu and François Hollande have been criticised for what some believe is a misleading photo opportunity.

The world leaders were pictured supposedly at the forefront of a march of one million people on the streets of Paris, protesting the actions of Islamist militants who slaughtered 17 people in a spree lasting three days.

A photo has emerged which suggests the politicians were in a heavily guarded street which was closed to the public, prompting critics to accuse them of abusing the situation.

Politicians fought to be at the front of the picture, which many said showed them heroically “leading” the marches.

Critics suggest the government figures were misleading the public and it was all just a “photo op”.

With 50 high profile political figures marching through a city where the terror threat level is at the highest possible, you’d expect at least some protection.

The historic demonstration was dubbed the largest France has ever seen, with a reported three million in attendance at marches across the country.

Some of the political big names who took part were British Prime Minister David Cameron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, Malian President Ibrahim Boubacar Keïta, PLO Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and former French President Nicolas Sarkozy.
