UK soldiers killed in Nad-e-Ali
Three versions of one news event
Which infographic right?
I guess we should ask 'how much do I now know'
None seem wrong, although how would we ever know?
Local sources communicate to 'stringers' and provide information for our news desk
At which point does information become interpretation?
It is generally assumed that we infographers should only 'show what we know'
If the 'know' is reported to us as 'fact' then we have to rely on this information
Or contact the source direct
