The Egyptians clearly don't like to see their president, Hosni Mubarak, walking behind other world leaders.

That's why the state-controlled Al-Ahram newspaper decided to change a picture that was distributed by Associated Press during the launch of the direct talks in Washington earlier this month.

The original photo

In the original photo, Mubarak is seen walking behind President Barack Obama, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.


In the doctored photo that was published by the Egyptian newspaper, Mubarak appears walking in front of Obama, Abbas and Jordan's King Abdullah.
